Distant Learning (DL) students at Tech are defined as students exclusively taking online classes and live more than 25 miles from either campus.
Print items that are on course reserve are not lent through the mail due to the amount of time the item would be unavailable in order to do so.
The library strives to provide services to DL students on par with those who attend classes on campus.
