Delivery of Materials to DE Students
Interlibrary Loan is a service to borrow resources for you from other libraries. As a distance education student, if you do not visit campus, we can make arrangements to get the books to you, rather than requiring that you pick them up. In addition, if we own a title or an article in print form, you can use the Interlibrary loan form to request that we send it to you. Be sure to explain that you are taking an online course in the notes field of the form.
