The Nelson Memorial Library is committed to offering library resources and services for Distance Education and Extension Site students. The following is a brief overview of library services availble to online and distance learning students.
Please note: You will need your Blackboard/Lionmail credentials in order to access resources from off-campus.
The library is happy to mail print books to you if you live in the continental US and are too far away to drive to the library yourself.
Interlibrary Loan services for Distance Education students (out of easy driving distance of a SAGU library) are limited to digital items (such as articles); for print items (such as books), students are encouraged to work with their local public library's Interlibrary Loan department to maximize checkout time with the book. Digital items typically arrive within two (2) to seven (7) days.
Once you discover a resource you would like from another library, there are several ways to request it:
We will process the request as quickly as possible and will email the item to you as soon as it becomes available or if we need more information to process your request.
SAGU does not charge patrons to borrow materials.
