Abstract
Reports results of a series of questionnaire surveys, conducted between Sep 1994 and Sep 1996, to determine: the experiences of students with regard to use of libraries on postgraduate distance learning programmes: arrangements made by course providers for library use; perception by university libraries of their role in distance learning; and ways in which public libraries support distance learning students. The report is preceded by a literature review (UK, North America and Australia) of the role of the library in distance learning
