The purpose of the Distance Learning Interest Group is to provide a statewide forum for library staff interested in distance learning services.


  • to encourage discussion on topics relevant to library support for distance learners and educators
  • to share information by sponsoring professional development opportunities
  • to promote library involvement with distance learning programs on Ohio campuses
  • to explore opportunities for cooperation with other distance learning organizations
  • to promote the exchange of information with the ACRL Distance Learning Section


To hold an annual meeting that includes either a program or a roundtable discussion, to sponsor a spring workshop and contribute to the ALAO Newsletter on topics relevant to the group’s membership.
