Distance Library Services - Idaho State University

Satellite Dish representing distance service


Distance Library services are intended for currently enrolled distance Idaho State University students, faculty, and staff who do not attend classes or work on the Pocatello Campus of ISU. These cities are considered local: Aberdeen, American Falls, Blackfoot, Chubbuck, Fort Hall, Inkom, Lava Hot Springs, McCammon, Moreland, Pingree, Pocatello, Rockford, Rockland, Springfield, and Sterling.

In the past the Oboler Library focused its distance Library services toward the University centers in Meridian, Idaho Falls, and Twin Falls. Since an increasing number of courses are moving to online with students located everywhere, library delivery must be focused directly to a student not a center. Book delivery to the ISU centers in Idaho Falls and Meridian continues to be provided at no charge. In addition, delivery to the University Library Center in Idaho Falls is usually faster than mail delivery because items are couriered daily (Monday - Friday); it also has a fully functional library.
