Interlending & Document Supply

ISSN: 0264-1615

Article publication date: 1 April 1992



Examines the document supply issues connected with distance learning, particularly in the South African context. Considers distance learning itself, the role of the library, and new approaches to text delivery: electronic software, print delivery and software, and electronic storage of text in databases. Concludes that the document/text delivery system should enable both students and lecturers to achieve their aims at acceptable cost, without denying access to any student.
