According to US News, "Research tells us that students who take advantage of library services have higher grade-point averages and are more likely to complete their programs in a timely fashion," says Ann Campion Riley, president of the Association of College & Research Libraries. Most distance students are people who want to succeed, but online students need to be highly motivated and self-directed to do this, she says.
