About this guide

Library Services for Roosevelt University Online Learners

Our Mission: The Roosevelt University Library is committed to providing library resources and services to online education students comparable to those provided for on-campus students.

Who is an Online Learner?  The Roosevelt University Library defines a distance learner as any Roosevelt student currently enrolled only in fully online or off-campus classes.  This guide is meant to help Distance Learners and Online students access library resources from off-campus.
