Library Services for Online Students

Library Support

The Library supports the research needs of online courses.

  • Online students have access to digital books and articles through the OneSearch database on the Library’s homepage.
  • Online eBooks and Streaming Videos may be searched separately, which may be particularly helpful for students unable to visit the Library.
  • UVU students may check out books at all other Utah higher education libraries with an official UVU student ID card.
  • A limited number of laptops and hotspots are available for checkout by current students. To check out a laptop, you must provide your UVU ID and be an undergraduate or graduate student currently taking classes. Only the student signing a check out agreement is allowed to pick up one laptop or tablet. Devices are subject to availability. Laptop/Hotspot Form
  • Questions about using the library? Call or chat with a librarian at the Reference Desk.

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 Outreach 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 Outreach Librarian and deliver the book information.

Interlibrary Loan

Books, articles, and other materials that aren't available from the Library can be ordered through Interlibrary Loan. Articles take a few days, and will arrive via e-mail. Books take a week to 10 days, and will arrive by mail.

Instructor Assistance

Faculty who are teaching or developing online courses can receive help integrating library resources into classes by contacting the Outreach Librarian.
