A distance student is a student currently enrolled at WSU who has classes meeting less than once a week at Winona or for students who attend remote classes from a place other than Winona.
If you are a WSU distance student, Krueger Library will mail you books or scan and e-mail you articles from the library collection, as well as mail requested resource sharing materials.
You have access to our online library, which includes ebooks and full-text articles from our databases. Use your StarID and password to access these from anywhere.
Krueger Library can mail books and DVDs to you. Use OneSearch to find books and DVDs, and sign in with your StarID and password to request the item. To have it mailed to you respond to the On Hold email you receive with your mailing address.
You are responsible for shipping costs to return the item to the library.
There are two ways you can receive articles from Resource Sharing: an email with an attachment or an email containing a link and PIN with instructions to download your article.
If you receive your article from Minitex, you have a limited time to download your article. It will be removed in 7 days or after 5 viewings. Please download and save it to your device before this time.
