Getting Material EKU Libraries Don't Have

We will request items we don't have through Library Express/Interlibrary Loan.  If it is a journal article or book chapter, that will be processed electronically - scanned and emailed.  While this may be fairly fast, COVID-19 has impacted many libraries in terms of opening and staffing.  It's best to request these resources as far in advance as possible to allow for delays in obtaining items.


For books and tangible items, you may again use Library Express/Interlibrary Loan.  However, many libraries are NOT lending out books due to the pandemic so place your request early, and have a backup plan if we can't get the book for you.

Books EKU Libraries Have in our Collection

In order to maintain the safe sharing of our collections during the Covid-19 pandemic, the physical book stacks will be closed to patron browsing at least through Fall 2020. To request print books for check-out, you may use the library's main search and your Library Express account by clicking on the "Request It" link that will appear next to your desired title. 


Please request your book at least one business day in advance. The book will be pulled and waiting for you in the Main Library lobby.
