Borrowing physical library items, such as print books, is available. To return borrowed items, including Interlibrary Loan materials, please use the book drop located next to the Library’s main entrance.
Course reserve materials are available via an online service. Faculty may request print and electronic items to be placed on reserve. E-reserves are password protected so students should contact their professor for access.
Interlibrary Loan requests continue to be available. Use the online form to make a request (log in required).
Instructional Services are delivered in-person on campus or virtually using videoconferencing tools. Faculty wishing to schedule an instruction session may complete a request form or contact a librarian.
Library Spaces are open to WSU affiliates and the general public. Seating, computer workstations and public service desks have been reconfigured to maintain social distancing and prevent crowding. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray for surfaces is available.
Electronic collections include more than 300,000 e-books and e-journals, and 280 databases are accessible online to WSU students and faculty. Search for books, publications, media and more using the search box on the Library Homepage. You can also limit your search to just books and media or publications.
