Don't think we need this bit...

Just in case we need it :

"I had previously worked at the Distance Learning Unit at the University of Leicester Library. The unit was set up provide specific library services for all distance learning students. Funding came from the studentís fees with a flat rate paid to the University Library whether or not the students made use of the services offered. Elements of the service include an enquiry service, a postal book loan service for the UK, a document delivery service and literature searching service.

I decided to undertake this project as my dissertation as I felt that distance learning students require a lot of information resources in order to complete their studies. Additionally, since funding came directly from the distance learners, it is imperative that the strengths and weaknesses of the distance learning system be determined in order to improve the service."
