Distance Education Library Services

“Every student, faculty member, administrator, staff member, or any other member of any institution of higher education, is entitled to the library services and resources of that institution” (ALA, 2008)

This excerpt from the ACRL Standards for Distance Learning Library Services is the Access Entitlement Principle and the foundation for establishing equal access of library resources to distance learning students and is the guiding principle for Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s Henry G. Bennett Memorial Library’s Distance Education Library Services.

The SE Library’s Distance Education Library Services facilitate remote access for SE students, faculty, administration, and staff  to all electronic resources (databases and e-books), Print materials (via ILL and OK-SHARE), and library services needed for their academic success without regard to location or time.

Distance Education FAQs

What can I access remotely? The Library Catalog, all of our Electronic Resources (Databases, e-resources), Information Literacy Tutorials, Interlibrary Loan options, Reference Help, and Research Guides are our primary resources and services for remote users.

How do I find books/articles? The search box on the Library Homepage is a good place to start or you can go directly to the library catalog for books or the Electronic Resources webpage for a list of our databases to find articles.

What is Ebsco Discovery Service? This is a search system that allows you access to a variety of search methods all in the same place. The following methods are provided: 1) Findit@SE – an all-in-one search tool; 2) Books & More – allows you to search physical materials within the library; 3) Databases – allows you to search individual databases; 4) Journals A-Z – allows you to look for individual journal titles.
