Tips for Finding Books in the University Libraries
Where do I find books?
You can search for and find books in the following places:
WSU Libraries Catalog - Use the libraries' catalog to find books, e-books, documents, media, and other materials located in the library.
Other Library Catalogs - In addition to WSU's library catalogs, you can also search and find books in the catalogs of other institutions, such as WorldCat, the Kansas Library Catalog, and the Wichita Public Library.
Interlibrary Loan - If the libraries at WSU do not have the book you are looking for, you can request an interlibrary loan to borrow the book from another institution.
How do I find and access electronic books?
In addition to books in print, WSU libraries also offer electronic books. You can search for them the same way you would any other book by using the WSU Libraries Catalog, or you can search the libraries' various ebook collections in the list of electronic databases. To learn how to access and download these books, visit the library's Electronic Books libguide. A few of the ebook collections are listed below:
