Library Services Available to Distance Students

Distance learners can get research help from Kansas State University librarians via e-mail, online chat, or by calling a toll-free number. See our Ask a Librarian information at

K-State Libraries can also assist in obtaining books, journal articles, and other library materials. Students can access the Libraries’ online databases and electronic journal collections by using their eID and password. All materials in the Libraries are accessible to distance students through the Interlibrary Loan Service. Students can receive PDFs of articles and up to 50 pages of a book. Interlibrary Services will also mail books and other physical items that the Libraries own or borrow from other libraries. For more information, see

Local students who would like to come to the library but do not have a K‐State ID card, can call ahead to the circulation desk to make arrangements. Students should specify that they are not an on‐campus student.
