Abstract

Distance learning can take many different forms, ranging from mailed printed materials to desktop video conferencing. The revolutionary aspect of online distance learning is that it enables a new method of learning, which is accessible at the learner’s convenience. With the tremendous growth of the Internet, distance learners have access to an overwhelming range of e-Resources available at the click of a mouse. e-Resources are very powerful, dynamic and essential to any organization. New information and communication technologies, as well as new educational models, require library professionals to re-evaluate the way they develop, manage and deliver e-Resources and e-Services for distance learners. In this new information age, emphasis is on the need for further/continuing education for library professionals through distance learning to enhance their professional skills.
