Abstract

In all academic libraries the developments within new information technology, information handling, new categories of materials and publications, and new user demands have changed the traditional use of the library. But in most libraries there has been no decrease in traditional use, so libraries have to cope with the situation of being a hybrid library where traditional services combine with virtual library functions. The article deals with the problems libraries face in this situation and the opportunities presented under these new conditions. A special focus in the article has been placed on competition. What are the threats and the opportunities for libraries in a future in which monopolistic document and information centres disappear, and what will happen in the area of interlending and document supply? Will these functions survive in the electronic library?

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the study is to highlight the need for academic librarians to incorporate effective methodologies in their delivery of information literacy instruction.

Design/methodology/approach

The researchers conducted a qualitative research using a case study approach. A nonprobability or purposive sampling method was employed in this research to select five participants. Semistructured interviews and observation were used to garner data from the sample.

Findings

The findings of the study revealed that the support required by distance education and face-to-face students is typically the same. An examination of the findings pointed to the fact that some students may be demotivated in information literacy instruction sessions because of an overload of information, which leads to frustration and poor performance.

Practical implications

The findings of the study highlight the need for Caribbean academic librarians to incorporate effective methodologies in their delivery of information literacy instruction and provide an analytical view of how these methodologies may impact performance, understanding and the overall work produced by both students and faculty.

Originality/value

Research on the topic specific to the Caribbean is limited; therefore, research of this nature provides useful strategies that academic librarians may use in developing stellar information literacy programs in the Caribbean to help both students and faculty members achieve excellence.

The authors give an overview of remote document supply in the world today and some of the key factors influencing its development.

Finally, they make some predictions for the future.
