This research aims to address the issues in providing information resources and services to the distance education students of Shiraz University.
Using a survey methodology, the investigator ran SPSS Software to analyze both descriptive and inferential statistics.
The findings highlighted the most important library services. Although the Virtual Institute of Shiraz University does not offer any of the library services noted, the majority of distance education students are making use of other information resources in their studies.
As the distance education system in Iran is in its infancy, findings of this study can be invaluable in highlighting the most significant library and information services for the distant learners.
