Online Students Use of the Library

This guide is intended for students who are using the library online to help guide the experience and make the library website easier to understand and use!

Library Services

As World Campus students, you have access to several library services. Some of the more valuable services for online learners like interlibrary loan are explained on this page. 

Course Reserves: As an online student, a service of the library that you will probably be using frequently is Course Reserves or E-Reserves. This is essentially a way for your instructor to keep a safe and copyright allowed list of resources and readings that you will be using throughout your course. To find your E-Reserves all you need to know is your course number or instructor name.

Requesting Materials - At times, you may find that you need a book or other physical material. If you live in North America, we can deliver items directly to you for free with a return label for free shipping.

Ask a Librarian - Get help with library and research questions via chat, email, text or phone.

Research Data ServicesThis service can help you with data related tasks such as finding data, statistical support, understanding how to use GIS data, and connections to other data centers on campus. You can schedule an appointment via their page. They also offer a variety of classes on related topics.
