Distance learning and public access libraries

An earlier post discussed distance learning. My encounters with students from Phoenix University remind me of my encounters with students from paralegal programs. These distance education programs like the paralegal programs rely upon libraries funded by someone else. The commercial education programs did not contribute to our budget, but their students expected our library to provide full-service. That private companies relied upon public resources struck me as ironic.
