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.

****Make sure you designate the Delivery Location as Home-Distant Learner and provide your Mailing Address, City, State, and Zip.
Please note: The UWF Libraries will pay for shipping to your home, but students are responsible for paying return shipping on print materials.

This is what it looks like if you are off campus and are not logged in (note the red tab!): 

If you click on the red tab, you will be directed to log in. If you have already authenticated and are able to access the Libraries' resources, the homepage will look like this, with a green access tab:
