Library Services and Resources for Distance Education Students: Distance Education

This LibGuide will provide valuable information on library services and resources available at John B. Cade Library.

Who Qualifies for Distance Education Services?

The Library considers students who are enrolled in Southern University and A & M College online degree programs that do not come to campus for those courses to be Distance Education (DE) students. These students are eligible for the same services as on-campus students.

What library services are available to Distance Education Students?

John B. Cade Library strives to accommodate the information needs of students and faculty outside of the Baton Rouge area. The Library will send books and materials at no cost for shipping to distance education students who live more than 30 miles from Baton Rouge, with the student covering the cost of returning items in a timely fashion. Students who live less than 30 miles are free to come to the library for material.
