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

Problems Logging In?

This usually happens when you don’t start your search from the library’s website.  You can either:

  • Search for the title of the article/book/other resource using the search box on the library's home page -or-

  • Set up Google Scholar to work with WCU.
