This compilation presents eighteen articles that originated in the volumes of the Off-Campus Library Services Conference Proceedings (1983-1989), issued by Central Michigan University. They provide access to a vital segment of the literature concerned with the provision of library services away from the main campus environment. The articles selected, which have been expanded and revised, cover a broad spectrum of topics, including prerequisites for off-campus library services; regional accreditation standards; privileges for off-campus faculty; faculty perspectives on off-campus programs; Australian, Canadian, and British insights on off-campus library services; the development of branch campus libraries; instructional resources support for off-campus academic programs; and several model library programs.
