Want an item that is already checked out or otherwise unavailable?
You can complete a materials request card at our desk or place an online hold on items found in our catalog.
You can also electronically request available library materials from EWU’s library catalog, or from Summit (the catalog of our Orbis Cascade Alliance) by clicking on the “Request Item” button.
EWU materials may be picked up at JFK Library or Spokane Academic Library. Summit items can be delivered to any EWU location (Cheney, Spokane or Bellevue), usually within a few days.
When the item you have requested is available we will notify you via email.
Library materials are subject to recall at any time. If an item you have checked out is RECALLED, you have no fewer than seven days to return the item. (Material recalled for placement on reserve may be recalled sooner, however, due to urgent demand.)
The library system automatically revises the due date of the recalled item, to reflect the seven-day return period. A recall notice, stating the item has been recalled and the due date has been revised, is sent to the current borrower.
Recalled items that are returned after the revised due receive higher fines.
