As a responsible steward of our financial resources, librarians are continually scrutinizing each resource the library purchases, from individual books to electronic databases. The librarians recognize the importance of electronically-accessible resources for EWU students, and are prioritizing renewal and purchase of resources that directly support student learning. Librarians are also cognizant of the need to support disciplines as equitably as possible, and are striving to spread reductions over all areas.
EWU Libraries leverages the buying power of the Orbis Cascade Alliance (OCA) consortium of Pacific Northwest academic libraries in order to obtain lower-cost subscriptions to electronic resources. Additionally, EWU Libraries takes advantage of free resources offered by vendors during the COVID-19 crisis (see Extended Access to Existing EWU Library Subscriptions and Temporary Library Access to New Resources for links to these resources). EWU Libraries’ interlibrary loan requesting service and the OCA’s Summit borrowing service support students and faculty in obtaining resources the Libraries does not directly own or access through a subscription.
If you don't see a resource you are looking for listed on this page or would like suggestions on alternative resources, please contact your subject librarian to inquire about the status of the resource or alternatives. This page will be updated as decisions are made regarding renewal or cancellation of resources.
