Library Orientation for Online Students

Important & Useful Services

The Library is here to support your academic work. This page highlights some of our resources and services that you'll need during your program. Want to dive right into the resources for your subject or course? Go here to see what we've got just for you!

Interlibrary Loan: For if the Library doesn't have what you need

If you come across an article or book that is not in our collections, you can still get it! Just use Interlibrary Loan to request that we get you a copy of it. We'll borrow it from another library, and get it to you (usually an electronic copy) in a few business days.

It will automatically be an option in most databases, or you can fill out the form: InterLibrary Loan

Research Support

We're happy to schedule virtual research appointments with you via phone, chat, skype, or whatever method of communication works best for you. 

Make a Research Appointment and work with a librarian to:

  • discuss and narrow your topic
  • refine your searching techniques, and
  • choose the highest-quality information to use.
Librarians are here to support your learning and research, and to make finding information a straightforward and friendly process. Find your subject specialist on our Librarians Profiles page.
