Distance Learning Guide for Students: Tutorials

The library supports Distance Learners with research assistance, online workshops, and shipping of physical materials to a home address.

A Reference Librarian's Top Four Tips for Distance Learning Students

  1. Your work computer may not always work. Often times your work computer will have firewalls, which may prevent you from accessing the Library’s databases and other electronic materials.
  2. Plan ahead. Although a lot of library resources are online or instantly available through the JDH Library website, we do not have access to everything. There may be a time when you need to request an item from another library. By planning ahead you guarantee you’ll receive your research materials in time.
  3. Keep your 16 digit UWS ID number nearby. When you enroll at UWS, you’ll receive a 16 digit UWS ID number. You will need this to request books and articles through the JDH Library.
  4. Use and check your UWS email account. This is where all communication from the library and other UWS departments will be sent.
