Distance Learning

Most library resources and services are available to all students enrolled in courses through Kansas State University, whether you're on or off campus!  Nearly every online database, ejournal, or ebook can be accessed from off-campus using your K-State eID and password.

Book and article delivery options are also available. For more information, visit Distance students: What library services are available to them or Ask a Librarian!

Interlibrary Loan

Using Interlibrary Loan, remote users have access not only to K-State Libraries' materials, but also the print and electronic holdings at libraries around the world. Articles and book chapters up to 50 pages can be delivered electronically.

You may have physical items such as books or videos shipped to you as well. These materials typically take between 4 and 12 days via UPS to arrive at your location. Unfortunately, we can not overnight materials.

  • Catalog (find materials like books, CDs, and DVDs)
  • Databases (electronic materials like journal articles, ebooks, and book chapters)
  • Search It (Searches across online library materials like the catalog, databases, and digital collections)
