Online Students

The library seeks to be current and responsive in meeting the information needs of students enrolled in its distance learning courses and programs by supporting teaching, learning, and research. We aim to provide equal library service and learning resources to our faculty and students, regardless of location.

This library website is designed primarily to facilitate the research of our online students and is subdivided into useful research sections. To begin your research, visit the “Research” menu to locate what you are looking for.

Online students are also encouraged to locate items at their local libraries or through the Inter-Library Loan service provided by many local libraries. The world’s largest library network ( will assist in locating the desired item at a nearby library. The LU library staff members are available to assist students needing help in locating needed items.
