The University of Florida provides an extensive offering of online deree and off campus distance learning programs at the bachelors, masters, specialist and doctorate leves as well as certificate, non-degree and continuing education courses. With the expansion of the UF Online undergraduate degree program and the recently announced addition of UF to the Unizin collaboration, UF is poised to substantially expand its presence in the area of online education.
The University of Florida Libraries likewise have a significant amount of experience supporting the universtity's online/distance learning initiatives across campus. Our traditional services, including course reserves, inter-library loan, virtual reference services and teh provision of electronic resources in multiple formats, all contribute to the support of online/distance learning students. Up to this point the Libraries have lacked a formal, cohesive group to lead those efforts-the Online & Distance Learning Support Committee is intended to fill that role and provide guidance and leadership to all units and departments in the UF libraries that support online/distance learning.
