Welcome to the New DOLS Website

Hello Distance and Online Learning Section members!

The past year has been out of the ordinary for several reasons, including the unexpected demise of the previous DOLS website. The DOLS Web Committee has spent the past year working with DOLS committees and ALA to design a new website and restore archival access to some content and information you know and love from the previous site. Thank you for your patience this year while the website has been down or in progress.

You may notice some changes. We’ve taken the opportunity to update the site navigation and aesthetics, resulting in a website that we hope is better situated to support and represent the work you and our hard-working committees do in a format that is accessible to all of our members. You may wish to take this opportunity to update your DOLS bookmarks to lead to our new homepage at
