The latest fashion in higher education is distance education. Like most fashions this is not a new idea. For decades, the British Open university has provided high-quality degree programs for remote studens, and correspondence courses have a fine tradition in many parts of the world. but the recent increse in the availability and number of distance education courses offered does have a rationale. Modern technology-notably the Internet - provides opportunities for really high-quality distance education. Digital libraries are one of those opportunities. The Digital Libraries have become a gateway to technical information and a major support element for distance education and the development of digital collections have became an integral part of the teaching learning process. In this present thearetical paper a modest attempt has been made by the authors to examine the role of digital libraries in distance education.
