Helpful Hints for Distance Learning Services

  • Plan ahead! Allow plenty of time for requested materials to be delivered.
  • Check the Online Public Access Catalog for availability of materials. Some materials may not be available as they are already checked out. Reference books, periodicals, Special Collections materials and reserve materials cannot be sent to distance education users. When possible specific pages will be copied and sent.
  • Be sure to fill out all forms completely.
  • Remember that you are responsible for costs of returning books via insured U.S. Mail or UPS.
  • Books must be returned promptly to avoid overdue fines.
  • Charges for photocopied materials should be paid promptly.
  • Many of our resources use pop-ups; if you have a pop-blocker enabled in your browser, you will need to turn it off when searching library resources.
