Sharma, Lalit and I.V. Malhan. “Library and Information Needs and Problems of IGNOU Students of Jammu Region.” Paper presented at the AAOU Pre-Conference Seminar on “Outreach Library Services for Distance Learners,” February 20, 2002, New Delhi, India. Online. Courses at the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) often require students to collect information and consult the Library. Due to the hours the regional central libraries are open, some students face difficulties in accessing library and information support services. A study was conducted to determine the information needs and problems of students. An account of the findings is provided. Based on the study it is suggested that the IGNOU library system should become more interconnected, a document supply service should be offered, and agreements with other university libraries and public libraries should be explored.
