Online Learners Library Guide: Services for Distance Learners

Information for students who take classes online

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan provides free access to materials not owned by the UWF libraries, designated lost in our catalog, or not in a format you prefer.

The first time you use the Interlibrary Loan account (login below) you will be asked to register and identify contact information. Thereafter, your information will be stored and bibliographic items will be automatically inserted if you use WorldCat or library databases.

Please note: The UWF Libraries will pay for shipping to your home, but students are responsible for paying return shipping on print materials.

Accessing Library Resources from Off Campus

Many of our resources may be accessed only by current UWF students, faculty, and staff.  For Remote Access (off-campus), we must authenticate you as a valid UWF user before connecting you to these resources.  Click the Access tab on the library home page to log in using your Argonet credentials.  When the Access tab is GREEN, you have full access.  If the tab is RED, you are not logged in to the library's proxy server.

Distance Learners who live over 50 miles from our physical campuses in Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach may request books be mailed from the UWF Libraries to their homes.

Access your account in the Libraries catalog to find the book you want. Use the blue "Request" link to request that the available copy be sent to you.
