Library Services for Distance Students

Distance Education Videos

Many of the videos for the Distance Education courses are available for download. For more information about course materials, contact the Distance Education Department.

Article Delivery

If you need articles from the Library, we can e-mail copies to you. To request an article:
  1. Search OneSearch for articles on your topic.
  2. Print or email full text articles available from OneSearch.
  3. If the full text isn't available, find if the article is available from another online or print source by searching for the magazine or journal in Journals by Title. (Type in the journal or magazine title, not the article's title, to locate full text.)
  4. If the article is available in print at the UVU Library please contact the distance education librarian.
  5. If you cannot find copies of the articles you need, you can request them via Interlibrary Loan.
Book Delivery

If you need books from the Library collection, we can mail them to the library location closest to you. To request a book:
  1. Use the Library Catalog to find the book(s) you want.
  2. Contact the distance education librarian and deliver the book information.
You may use Interlibrary Loan to request books that the UVU Library does not own.
