To search for a known title book, start by entering the title keywords into the search box in the center of EKU Libraries' homepage.

If EKU Libraries has the book, it will usually appear at the top of your search results, as shown with the example below.

You'll notice a listed Location, Call Number, and Status for books available at EKU Libraries.

Tip! If your search for a specific book fails to find the book usually within the first page of results or finds only book reviews of the book, then EKU Libraries does not currently have the book. Remember, the library search is searching content currently in the collection. To search for and request books not in the current collection, we recommend searching the library's WorldCat Discovery search. 


Borrowing the Book

If you want to check out a physical book, you can either visit the library and find the book on the shelf or use the Request It link to have the book pulled and held for you. Need to know how to do that? Please review the FAQs with step-by-step directions linked below:
