Welcome to Clarion Online Services

Clarion University Libraries offer services designed to support research and information needs of off-campus students and faculty. Distance education support includes reference and information assistance, access to online resources, online tutorials, and interlibrary loan.

Each time you contact the library, please identify yourself as a Clarion University distance education student. You also will be asked to provide contact information so that resources may be e-mailed, faxed, or mailed to you.

The Library staff is committed to responding to your requests in a timely manner. While online technology makes many resources available in a very short time, library staff sometimes need to send materials by mail or contact other libraries for materials not owned by Clarion University. To insure that materials reach you in time to support your projects, please request resources as soon as possible.

Clarion University Libraries maintains a specific web page for Virtual Campus Students. Please access this page, if you need more detailed information.
