Services for Distance Education Students

Library Cards

If you do not have a student card you can request a library card by emailing to Include your name, UWin ID, mailing address and telephone number.

Note: If you have previously been issued a University of Windsor Student Card and have remained enrolled for every semester since, this card will remain active and you will not require another Library Card.


Accessing our Online Collection

We have over a million online works available to our readers and they are available from any PC with an Internet connection anywhere in the world.  To access any of our electronic subscriptions from off-campus, you will be required to authenticate using either your UWinID and password or your LibraryID and password. Due to our licensing restrictions, we are only able to provide off-site access to the electronic collection to registered students, faculty and staff of the University of Windsor.

Borrowing from other libraries

Your University of Windsor student card allows you to borrow, in person, at all Ontario University Libraries with some exceptions; you can learn more about borrowing materials from other Canadian libraries. Also, through the INFOPASS program, students may borrow library items, in person, from selected libraries in Michigan. As the Leddy Library's Interlibrary Loan service is delivered to the University of Windsor campus, it may be more convienent to use the Interlibrary Loan service of a public library that is physically closer to where you are.

Research Help

For a quick answer right away, try out our Ask a Librarian service. If there is no librarian available to help you, you will be able to send us an email instead. We answer questions about searching for information, accessing materials, strategies for research... no question too big or small! We also have several useful guides that contain video and text based tutorials on various library research topics under Research Help.
