As a distance learner at Wheelock College, you have access to a vast array library resources and services. If you're enrolled in Wheelock's off-campus, international, or online programs, this page is for you.
Get Online Library Resources
Students in all programs have access to Wheelock College Library's online resources. Here are a few places you might get started:
- Databases A to Z contains a comprehensive overview of our online resources. Databases may contain full-text reference works, journal and magazine articles, e-books, videos, or images. For more information, click on the info icon next to the name of the database that interests you.
- Research Guides are built by Wheelock librarians to help you get started on your research assignments.
- Most library resources require you to log in with your Wheelock ID and password. Log in to the library website here, or get troubleshooting help here.

Faculty teaching in distance programs are encouraged to get in touch with the Library to discuss options for class-based librarian support.
Public libraries and WorldCat.org
Don't forget that your local public library can also be a great resource during your degree program. And WorldCat.org lets you search the collections of thousands of libraries around the world, find an item of interest, and then locate a library near you that owns it. Search WorldCat to find books, music, video, and audio in libraries near you.
