Taking Online Courses?

Are you taking classes online? You can still use library services and access library resources! Students who are enrolled in UW-Whitewater online degree programs are considered Distance Education (DE) students. Graduate students and faculty are also eligible for these services. These students are eligible for the same services as on-campus students, as well as others listed below.
