    Abstract

    The academic institution of today is becoming increasingly involved in the electronic delivery of programmes to learners who are geographically dispersed. At the same time, Internet use from home by internal and external students is rapidly expanding. The surge in demand for 24-hour access to IT-based facilities by students and staff off-campus has made the expansion of current services a strategic imperative. This paper suggests a particular solution to the problem of meeting the growing needs of remote users through extending information services by innovative, collaborative efforts with universities worldwide.
