Items can be mailed to distance students at no charge to them. However, students will have to pay to send books back to us in the mail. We recommend telling your postal carrier that you are sending it back "Media Mail" to a library for a cheaper shipping rate. The items will be checked back in based on the post mark date of the package, so do not worry about paying extra money for overnight/express shipping.
We also are able to scan sections of books and/or articles and email them to you in a pdf format, provided we do not already have access to an electronic version through one of the databases and as long as it falls within copyright limits. This service is free.
For more information on how to request articles and books please visit our Distance Student Libguide and select the relevant tab. For further help you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions that you have.
