We Provide Research Resources

EWU Libraries online resources include databases for finding articles, most with full-text, electronic books, census and other government resources, to name a few.  All of our databases may be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet using your NetID username and password.  Need help with your NetID?  Go to or contact the IT Help Desk for more info. (509-359-2247).

If you need background information, then you can search our online encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc. or search our library catalog to find books.

All of the computers are networked to the print stations, located on every floor of the library. You can use your Eagle card to pay for your print jobs.  You can also bring your laptop and access our wireless network.

We Provide Reference and Research Instruction Sessions 

Librarians are available to provide instruction on using library resources for your classes.

This instruction can take a variety of forms:

  • Face-to-face instruction in the Instruction Rooms at JFK or Spokane Academic Library
  • Detailed online guides created for specific classes
  • Or a combination of both

Faculty who wish to schedule an instruction session, contact:

Or Check Out Our Online Tutorials

We have a number of online tutorials on conducting library research as well as guides for specific resources.
