Access Article Databases
For EWU 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 the Full Text of an Article
From any of our article databases click on this icon or the link EWU Check for Full Text. The results screen will look something like the image below.
If the article is available full text online, there will be a link to the name of the database (ProQuest, Wilson Web, etc.)
If the article is not available online, use the link Interlibrary Loan for an Article. You will be prompted to log into the Interlibrary Loan system. If you have not created a username/password, click the gray First Time Users link and you will be prompted to set up your personal account. Be sure to indicate that your Preferred Book, DVD Delivery Method is Mail to Distance Education and your Pickup Location is Distance Ed Location. Click the red link Interlibrary Loan for an Article again and log in using the username and password you created for yourself. The request form will automatically be filled out. Simply verify the information and click the gray Submit Request button at the bottom.
It usually takes 1-2 weeks for an article to be sent to you. When it's ready for you to pick up online, you will receive an email from the Interlibrary Loan department, with a link to log back into your Interlibrary Loan account. Go to the section Electronically Received Articles and click on the link under the heading View.
