For Distance Students

As remote learners, you have access to hundreds of thousands of full-text electronic articles, ebooks, and digitized materials) in more than 400 online databases and research tools in all formats covering almost every discipline. Everything from statistics and digitized historical documents to newspapers, maps, and government information, all accessible from anywhere at any time (e.g. through our website or your MyCourses account). The gateway to all of this is the library website.

Standards for Distance Learning Services

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) sets standards for access of materials for distance learners, summarized briefly by the following quotation:

Every student, faculty member, administrator, staff member, or any other member of an institution of higher education, is entitled to the library services and resources of that institution, including direct communication with the appropriate library personnel, regardless of where enrolled or where located in affiliation with the institution. Academic libraries must, therefore, meet the information and research needs of all these constituents, wherever they may be.

We work to uphold the ACRL Standards for Distance Learning Services.
