Revised ACRL Standards for Distance and Online Learning Library Services

The ACRL Board of Directors approved a revised and updated version of the association’s Standards for Distance and Online Learning Library Services at its February 17, 2023, virtual meeting. Developed by the ACRL Distance and Online Learning Services Section (DOLS) Standards Committee, the revised Standards are intended for anyone who is involved in providing services to distance and online learning communities. The document provides a means to foster cross-departmental communication and improve advocacy, and offers a roadmap for strategic planning.

The revised Standards for Distance and Online Learning Library Services is freely available in the Standards, Guidelines, and Frameworks section of the ACRL website. Contact DOLS Standards Committee Co-Chair Natalie Haber at natalie-haber@utc.edu with questions about the Standards.
