Copy: Distance Learning

Distance Learning

Even if you're not in the Monroe area, you still have access to many of the same library services as on-campus students.

Databases (journal, newspaper, and encyclopedia articles)
Many of the sources in our databases are available online in full text. To log in to the databases from off-campus, simply enter your username (CWID) and PIN (birthdate in MMYY format) when prompted.

Ebrary is a collection of full-text e-books which you can access by following the same login instructions as for the databases above. Create a "bookshelf" (Ebrary account) to save books and easily find them again later.

Government Publications
Many Government Publications are now available online for free. Follow the directions here to search for them in the Library catalog. There's also a wealth of information on the main Government Publications page.

Reference help
If you need help searching the databases or Ebrary, you can give us a call at the Reference desk at 318-342-1071 or email us at The desk is staffed from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, and 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
