Distance Learning Library Services (DLLS) provides access to information resources for distance learning students and for the faculty who teach those classes. Distance Learning (DL) students receive the same caliber of library services and have access to the same information resources as on-campus students, including: print and electronic materials, research databases, electronic course reserves, Interlibrary Loan, Research Guides on topics in a variety of disciplines, and course-specific guides. The DL Librarian assists students and faculty via e-mail, chat, phone, Zoom, or in person to provide research consultations and library instruction.
Like on campus students, all DL students receive Link Blue accounts and library card accounts. The linkblue user ID and password allows students remote access via proxy server to electronic library resources (databases, e-journals and eBooks). The library card account identifies DL students in the UK Library circulation system, for the purposes of borrowing UK Library materials and creating an Interlibrary Loan account (ILLiad), for requesting items not held by the UK Library system. A DL student must first request a library card before creating their ILLiad account: Library Card Request Form
