Distance Learning

Falvey Memorial Library seeks to make our outstanding collection and services as accessable to distance learning students as to on-campus learners.

Our digital and electronic resources are available from off-campus, and librarians make every effort to extend research advice to distance learners via e-mail exchanges and telephone consultations.  We offer delivery of selected resources in our print collection and work with students to arrange suitable alternatives for our print materials that cannot be delivered.

If you experience difficulties accessing the Library's resources, try the Villanova Secure Gateway. It is a service that provides University faculty and staff secure remote access to Villanova network resources from anywhere on the Internet. The service can be accessed by logging in with your LDAP user name and password.


  Falvey Library Catalog

  WorldCat (OCLC)
WorldCat is a catalog of library collections worldwide. WorldCat highlights publications available at Villanova University. Other items can be requested via an inter-library loan request form.
WorldCat Step-by-Step is a self-paced interactive tutorial for students new to this resource.

  Dissertations and Theses Global (ProQuest)
A comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses with over 2.4 million dissertations and theses included from around the world.The database offers full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997 and strong retrospective full text coverage for older graduate works. Each dissertation published since July 1980 includes a 350-word abstract written by the author. Master's theses published since 1988 include 150-word abstracts. Bibliographic citations are available for dissertations dating from 1637, and more than 65,000 new citations are added to the database every year. Where available, PQDT provides 24 Page Previews of dissertations and theses. In addition, nearly one million are available for download in PDF format. (Digital dissertations and theses are archived as submitted by the degree-granting institution. Some will be Native PDF, some PDF Image).

  E-ZBorrow and Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary loans are only available for books and journals which are not owned by Falvey. The E-ZBorrow service can be used for books which the library owns, but which are currently checked out. E-ZBorrow books are provided by a local library network and tend to arrive faster than interlibrary loans.
