Abstract

The present study on Open Distance Learning (ODL) in Public Libraries is published in parallel with another study report on Knowledge Models for Library Services. Both are considered as key contributions to the expanding role of public libraries in the networked environment. The principal objective of the ODL study has been to investigate responsibility for open distance learning in the Member States in order to judge how far public libraries can be involved as direct players or, failing this, as mediators providing gateways to the various interests involved on the supply and user sides. On the basis of a state of the art review, the study examines how libraries can contribute to open distance learning, specifying those aspects which deserve special care and attention.
