EWU Library Catalog Title Search -- Search to see if we have a particular periodical (journal, magazine or newspaper) online, in print or microfilm. Type in the name of the journal, magazine or newspaper in the box where it says "journal of". (Just erase and type in your title.)
E-Journals -- Alphabetical list of the journals, magazines and newspapers we have online in our databases. It will not show if we have it in print or microfilm in the library.
If we do not have the periodical you are looking for, you may request specific articles via Interlibrary Loan.
The EWU Library Catalog gives you access to all the library's books, videos, CDs, government publications, as well as articles on all subjects.
What’s in the catalog?
If you don't have a particular item in mind, type in your keywords as you would in Google, as a string of words.
Know the title or author?
If you know the exact title of the item, type in the title "in quotes" and the last name of the author (if known).
Click Browse in the top bar and type in the title and/or author. (Note: The Browse function only works for EWU holdings of books or videos, not for titles held by other libraries.)
Refining Your Search
Because the EWU Library Catalog has records for all types of resources, you will very likely need to limit your search results. Note all the limiters on the left side, as well as some quick limiters at the top.
Mark Your Records
See the push pin icon on the far right (labeled "Keep this item" if you hover over it)?
Click it and it will change the push pin icon and highlight the brief record yellow. You have marked a record temporarily. Click the push pin icon in the top right corner to view your marked records.
The last line of the brief record describes where the item is located.
If the wording is green, that means it is readily available, either online or physically on our shelves at the JFK Library in Cheney or Spokane Academic Library.
If the wording is yellow, that means you'll have to request it. Click Check request options - held by Summit libraries. You must be logged in to request the item -- you'll be prompted to if you aren't already.
Once you are logged in, click the link Place Summit request (4-8 days). The form will ask you:
Click REQUEST. You will be notified via your EWU email address when the item is ready to be picked up.
If the wording is gray, that means either:
While the EWU Library Catalog has millions of records, it only will search through the holdings of the 39 Summit libraries. If you can't find a specific book, video, CD, etc., then go to the EWU WorldCat Catalog and re-do your search. WorldCat has records from thousands of libraries worldwide. You may request the item via Interlibrary Loan.
