Services for Distance Students

The University Libraries offer distance services to students who take all of their classes:

  • online
  • at WCU Center City
  • at the Graduate Center
  • at the Exton Center

Get Materials Sent to You

Lots of our resources (86% in fact) are available online. However, if you find something we don't have online, we are happy to:

  • mail books and DVDs to you.
  • scan articles available only in print and book chapters.
  • ask other libraries to get a copy for you (free to you). 

We'll talk about getting books sent to you in class today, but there's more information available in the Distance Students Guide
