Distance Education and Online Learning

This guide provides information that may be useful to students enrolled in distance education classes at the University of Arkansas

Obtaining Library Materials

The libraries have a wealth of materials available online.  Our library collections may be found on OneSearch. There you may find books, journals, and multimedia materials that you may access from your home or office.

If the libraries do not have an item you need, you may request that we order the item  for you via Interlibrary Loan.

If you live close to another Arkansas institution of higher learning, you may request a reciprocal borrowing card to allow you to check out materials from other libraries throughout the state/

Interlibrary Loan Services for Distance Education

The Interlibrary Loan department will deliver library materials to University of Arkansas students, faculty, and staff who participate in courses either online or in a location other than the Fayetteville campus. Individuals using this service must live outside a 15-mile radius of the Fayetteville campus. We will supply items owned by the University Libraries as well as items borrowed for you from other libraries.

Please use your ILLiad account to request materials. You are responsible for ensuring the materials are returned to the Interlibrary Loan department by the due date. Any charges associated with lost or overdue materials will be billed to you. The Interlibrary Loan department supplies pre-paid return postage labels for your convenience.
