Research guide for Planning Undergraduate and Graduate programs.


Beginning July 1, 2022, EWU Libraries will no longer have a presence at WSU’s Spokane Academic Library.

EWU students/faculty may continue to use the Spokane Academic Library space, computers and resources during staffed library hours using the same opportunities WSU affords to community members. EWU students/faculty, including those at the Catalyst Building, may apply for WSU Summit status, allowing access to WSU materials and requesting privileges from other libraries. Visit for more information.

For research help, you can use our Ask a Librarian page to contact us directly.  More information about EWU Libraries services via the EWU Spokane Catalyst Building beginning will be announced in Fall 2022.

Access Electronic Resources from Off-Campus

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 use to log into campus computers, the wireless network, NetStorage,etc.

  • For students, your username is the first letter of your first name, your last name, and the last 2 digits of your EagleCard number.
  • For faculty/staff, your username and password are the same ones you use to access EWU email.

If you have not created your password, go to See NetID Account for more information.


*Note: The most efficient way to find eBooks is to do a keyword search in the library catalog.  Please limit your search to EWU, then limit by Material Type eBooks.  EWU affiliated patrons can use their single sign on to access eBooks from anywhere.  If you want more help on these eBook collections, then see our eBooks research guide.
