Abstract: This study examines the variety of instructional practices employed in distance learning librarianship from the end of the Twentieth Century through the early beginnings of the Twenty-First Century. The authors provide a thorough review of the literature on distance learning library instruction, and the study highlights the instructional services provided at two academic institutions with distinctly different clienteles and missions—one a large American university and the other a large Caribbean university.
