Tip of the Week - #43 (What is a Distance Learner and How Do I Serve Them?)

Keywords: distance learner, pickup anywhere

A 'distance learner' defined in broadest sense as any user that is currently enrolled at one of the OhioLINK member institutions who seeks library services at another OhioLINK institution.

See the following document for more details:

If a student wishes to request a pcirc item but have it delivered to a location closest to them, they just choose the pickup anywhere option. This option is available to all OhioLINK patrons no matter their status but was created specifically with distance learners in mind.
