Am I a Distance Learner?

  • Anyone is welcome to use the links and information provided in this guide, but a good rule of thumb is that you are generally better off coming to the library if that is convenient for you.
  • If you are significantly away from campus (outside the Iowa City area, studying abroad, etc.) these pages are designed with you in mind.
