Distance Learning: Getting Materials

This guide will assist distance education students in understanding the services the library provides.

How It Works

  • To take advantage of these services, you must register with ILLiad.
  • Distance Education borrowers use ILLiad to request any material; whether it is owned by WVU or by anther library.
  • Select Distance Education as your status and choose DCL when you're asked "Where would you like to pick up your loans?"  Distance Education users, however, do not need to pick up their loans.
  • Distance Education services are currently offered only for holdings in the Downtown Campus, Evansdale and Health Sciences Libraries.

 

Important Things to Remember

  • You must choose "Distance Ed" as your status and "Downtown Campus Library" as your location
  • You must
    • be registered in or teach at least one distance education course OR
    • be enrolled in or teach a course that is offered by WVU Morgantown at a remote location OR
    • work at a WVU Extension Service Office outside of Monongalia County 
    AND
    • live outside of a 25 mile radius from Morgantown
