In literature courses, many older works are available online through digital archives.
Do I really need a library card?
A: Yes you do. Our library subscribes to excellent scholarly databases, E-books, and Films on Demand, all of which online students can access from off campus. Also, some assignments require the use of scholarly articles. The library is like one-stop research shopping!
Do I need to be on campus to take a literature course?

A: If the course is entirely online, you will not be expected to be on campus. Hybrid or face-to-face courses require on campus attendance.
