Finding Research Support

Ask a Librarian!

A librarian's job is to help you make effective use of the library and its resources. Any EKU Librarian is ready to help:

  • Find answers to specific questions;
  • Guide you through the use of search tools;
  • Track down library materials; 
  • Connect you to additional research and support services; and
  • Empower you to feel confident in your research capabilities.

Research and reference assistance is always available to you during OPEN Library hours. EKU Libraries provides a suite of RESEARCH HELP SERVICES. Be sure to utilize the following:

  • Chat via the blue Question? Ask Us! box on the right-hand side of the page to instantly connect with a librarian.
  • Call (859) 622-1790, and ask to speak with a librarian.
  • Email your question and a librarian will get back with you.

Meet with a Librarian!

You may prefer to meet with a librarian for assistance. Each department/program has a librarian assigned to them to offer specific, tailored library and research support.

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Library Express

The Library has two services in place that help get you the research materials you need. These services are housed under the umbrella of Interlibrary Loan -- Library Express.

Both services are related and interconnected; however, it isn't necessary for you to be familiar with the nuances of each. 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan gets you materials that we don't already have access to in our physical collection at the time of your request. This is a free service that costs you nothing to utilize. 

Library Express

Library Express is the service that handles getting you the materials we already have in our collection in a quick, efficient manner. This service is also free.

Checking Out Books as an Online Student

Use the Request It link!

Online-only students and faculty should use the Request It link to request print books or other physical materials from EKU Libraries current physical collection. The Request It link is connected to the Library Express service.

Once the item has been requested, it will be checked out to you and mailed to your home address.

If you know the title of the book you would like to request a copy, follow these steps:

  1. Search for the book using the library search feature.
  2. Look for the Request It link.
    • NOTE: You may need to look for a link labelled Access Options to reveal the request link. In turn, this may require you to first click on a book's title before you're able to locate a request link.
  3. Wait for your book.
    • If the Library has the book currently in our physical collection, the book will be checked out to you and mailed to your home address. 
    • If the Library doesn't currently have the book in our physical collection, an Interlibrary Loan request will automatically be generated for you.
