Access Article Databases

All of our databases may be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet, with your NetID username and password. (This username/password is the same one that you used to initially set up your EWU email account.) Your username is the first letter of your first name, your last name, and the last 2 digits of your EWU ID number.

Find Full-text within a Database
When you are searching in one of the library databases and the article in question isn't available full text right there, look for this icon or a hyperlink that says EWU - Check for Full Text.
Clicking the Check for Full Text button in the databases brings up a screen like this...
If the article is available online, it will say Full text available at:[link to database]. In the example above the article is available in Sage Premier.
If the article is not available full text, it will say "No full text available." Click the Find in a Library tab to see if we have it in print or microfilm. The page will look like the image below. Note:
- the years we have -- for the example below "Latest 5 years only"
- the location -- JFK Main Level Periodical
- the call number of the journal -- PC4001 .H7
If we do not have it online, nor in print/microfilm, then you may request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Use the link on either the View Online tab or the Find in a Library tab.
Arranging Library Instruction for Your Students
To advance the educational goals of information literacy and critical thinking, the EWU Libraries offer online tutorials, class and subject guides, and/or face-to-face instruction in library research methods to distance students in all programs. To integrate library instruction into your curriculum, then please contact:
- Ielleen Miller, EWU Libraries Coordinator of Instruction. 509-359-4816, [firstname.lastname@example.org].
- Correspond directly with the Library Instruction Liaisons for your discipline.

Try to schedule at least one month in advance for a face-to-face bibliographic instruction session, and if you have a research-related student assignment, providing an advance copy to the library liaison would be appreciated.
