Distance Students Policy

Moffett Library is dedicated to meeting the information needs of students who are located both locally and far from the MSU campus. 

To meet the needs of distance education students, the Moffett Library offers the following services:


        Electronic Databases
        Interlibrary Loan
        Direct shipment of library–held materials 



To qualify for direct shipment of library materials, a student must reside beyond a 50 mile radius of the campus.  

Moffett Library’s materials may be checked out for a period of 1 to 3 weeks dependent upon the posted checkout period, and may be renewed (unless someone else has a “hold” placed on the item) via the Internet. 

Working within these parameters will ensure that distance education students have the same quality learning experience afforded to that of a traditional on-campus student.
