Graduate Level Research in Education: A Guide: Home & Finding Books

Introduction to USU Library Services for Statewide Campus/Online Students

  • USU faculty members, staff, and students who live in Cache Valley may visit the Merrill-Cazier Library to check out books and other materials and to photocopy articles from periodicals that aren't accessible online.
  • All requests from students outside Cache Valley are now being handled through Interlibrary Loan (RSDD).  Hopefully, this will streamline the process - now you can always use your ILL account to request anything you can't get online.  Students residing in Cache Valley should use ILL services whenever USU does not own an item in print or electronically.
  • Reciprocal Borrowing:  All USU students are able to check out materials from all Academic Libraries in Utah.  To do so, bring your USU ID Card or Legal ID and proof of current registration.
