Distance Learning Library Services 

The purpose of the Distance Learning Library Services is to meet the research and information needs of students who take classes through the Distance Education Programs and for faculty who teach those classes. 

Tuskegee University Librarians are available online, in real time, to assist students, faculty, and staff with any information you need. We are almost always able to help you online. If not, we will refer you to the most direct source to get your questions answered. We do not provide legal, medical, or financial advice.

We are able to teach you how to:
-use the library online catalog for finding books and other materials on your topic 
-locate articles on your research topic using our subscription databases 
-evaluate web sites related to your topic for credibility and authority.

  • - WorldCat - The world's largest network of library-based content and services. WorldCat is a "master" catalog of library materials. It's a way for you to locate a book, video, or other items of interest and discover which libraries near you own the item. Individual member libraries in your community and elsewhere provide the actual services, such as loaning you a book or providing access to online articles.  WorldCat lets you search the collections of libraries in your community and thousands of other libraries around the world.

Copyright Restriction Information


  • The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies and other reproductions of copyrighted material.  Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
  • This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
  • By submitting an ILL request the user agrees to abide by these copyright restrictions. Copyright guidelines limit the number of articles a library can request during a calendar year from any given periodical title published within the past five years. This applies to all patron requests combined (not just a single individual); therefore, requests are sometimes rejected based on copyright restrictions.
