  • *Guide for Online / Distance Education Students: Books & eBooks

    Use this guide to learn how you can use the Lindsey Wilson College library from off-campus.

    Book options for distance learners

    Do you live too far away from campus and are unable to visit to pick up books? 

    Have no fear! You are still able to check out books and other library materials! These are your options:

    1. eBooks are readily available through the Library Catalog and many of our Databases. Use your Lindsey email and password to log in!
    2. Physical books and other items can be mailed to your home! See below for more information or email Kim Hamlett [hamlettk@lindsey.edu] to receive shipping details.
    3. Check out the local public or academic library in your area for options. You may prefer to request books there.
    4. Use the WorldCat catalog to find items in libraries near you.

    Check out the video tutorial below for how to find something in the library catalog!
