Librarians at the National University of Singapore are using a variety of Web and multimedia software tools to provide distance instruction to students on how to use the resources of the libraries. 
 
According to Aaron Tay, a librarian in the university’s Information Services Department, there are a number of reasons for adopting this approach. One is that there is a general familiarity with digital content among library users today which must be reflected in the way coursework and instruction is delivered, and another is a practical solution to the problem of operating across several campuses.
