Library Services for Distance Education Students


This orientation video will overview the resources
and services the West Chester University Libraries make
available to Distance Education students. The library is a great place to start when looking
for resources to help you with your coursework. We can save you time by helping you focus
your search to high-quality and relevant sources. We can save you money, since we offer instant
access to millions of full-text articles, e-books,
videos, and music. We can even get you free access to resources
we don’t own. As a WCU distance education student you have
immediate access to the library’s online
resources including: Ebooks, Full-text online articles, Streaming
videos & music You can also request items that are not
available online and have them sent to you free of charge if you
meet the library’s definition of a distance
education student. The library defines a distance education student
as someone who takes all of their classes Online, at WCU in Philadelphia, at the Graduate
Center, or some combination of classes in those
three categories If you take at least one class on campus, the
library does not consider you a distance
education student. If you think about it, the definition makes sense. If you have to be on campus for a face-to-face
class then you can stop by the library to pick up
and drop off physical materials. If you want an article that is not online you can
request it through the library service called
ILLiad. Specific directions for using ILLiad can be found
on the library website. If you have any problems or questions, contact
us! Librarians are available by chat, email, text, or
phone seven days a week. See the Ask Us page of the library website for
specific contact information. You can also contact the Office of Distance
Education at 610-436-3373 or
[email protected] for assistance.
