SHSU Newton Gresham Library

Newton Gresham Library Distance Learning Services cater specifically to the needs of students who are located away from one of our campuses. Newton Gresham Library's mission is to provide the same benefit of resources to all students whether they are online or on campus.

Distance Learning Services

Authenticated distance learners can access all the resources available to on campus students, including interlibrary services and, in cases where other alternatives are not available, mail or electronic delivery of library materials.

In order to become an authenticated Distance Learning Services user, an eligible student must complete an NGL Distance Learning Services application form online.
