Looking for books, videos, government publications, and other materials held at EWU Libraries as well as beyond EWU Libraries? Try searching the EWU WorldCat Catalog, which offers access to over 1 billion items found in over 10,000 libraries.
There are over 1 billion items: books, videos, CDs, plus millions of citations to articles from the databases ArticleFirst, MEDLINE, ERIC, and British Library Serials.
If you don't have a particular item in mind, type in your keywords as you would in Google, as a string of words.
If you know the exact title or author, click Advanced Search and fill in the boxes.
Materials held by EWU Libraries are listed first (unless you change the Sort by:). Summit Libraries' materials are listed next. Relevance ranking is determined by:
Refining Your Search
You may limit your results to a particular format, year, etc. by using the clustered results on the left side of the screen. Or add more keywords to the search box at the top.
Once you have found a relevant result, click on the hyperlinked title and note the Related Subjects. These are hyperlinked to bring up all the items given that particular subject.
Click on the title of the item to view the full record. The location, status, and call number of the item will be towards the bottom of the screen, under the heading Find a Copy in the Library.
Click on the hyperlinked title to bring up the full record for a particular item. How you request it depends on whether it is:
At the bottom of the full record, click the red button Request Summit Item.
At the bottom of the full record, click the button Request from Interlibrary Loan. On the next screen choose EWU if that isn’t already defaulted, and click the Send to Interlibrary Loan button. Log in using your NetID and password. Delivery is usually 1-2 weeks, to whichever EWU campus you chose as your Pickup Location in your Interlibrary Loan account personal information.
At the bottom of the full record you'll find links to databases that have full text articles from that journal, and/or our print holding information. In the example below, this 1998 article is available in two of the databases, and we have it in print.
If the article is available online, click the red Check for Full Text button. This will bring up a similar page as when you click on the yellow Check for Full Text button from our article databases:
If it is not online, nor have we cataloged the periodical, then a link to search the catalog by title appears. This probably means we do not have it, but double-check.
If we don't, then you may Request an Interlibrary Loan for the article by clicking on the link. Log in using your NetID and password. Electronic delivery takes 1-2 weeks. For more information, see Interlibrary Loan.
