Distance Education Policy

Distance Education Policy

The Cowan - Blakley Memorial Library is committed to assisting our distance education students with their research needs.  Distance education students are entitled to request that library materials or electronic files of articles or chapters be mailed to their home for their use.  A student must live at least 25 miles away to be considered a distance education student. For more information on the library's distance education resources visit our Distance Education Resources guide.
