Distance Education: Key Tools
Distance Educations Students
Students enrolled in distance education courses, certificates or degrees through UNC Chapel Hill are provided with full services from campus libraries.
Distance education students can access online library materials, use library guides to help find appropriate materials, use the Ask a Librarian service for personal help and request delivery of print materials to their homes.
This page provides access to these services from the Health Sciences Library.
The Document Delivery Department of the Health Sciences Library at UNC-Chapel Hill provides two services to Distance Learners:
- Delivery of materials owned by the UNC Libraries to your home if you live outside the city of Chapel Hill
- Acquiring of materials not owned by the UNC Libraries through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Off Campus Access: Most electronic journals, databases, and books are accessible off-campus to students, faculty, and staff, including UNC Hospitals' staff. Always use links on library pages so you will be prompted to enter your ID information.
