Need to search for and request a book not currently owned by EKU Libraries? Using WorldCat Discovery is a great way to do just that!

Start at the Old Search link on the EKU Libraries homepage to open WorldCat Discovery.


EKU Libraries' homepage with "Old Search" highlighted


Search for the title of the book.


WorldCat Discovery search screen with book title "Carry on, Warrior" entered in search box


Locate the correct book and simply click on the title of the book.


"Carry on, Warrior" highlighted in a WorldCat Discovery search screen


Once in the book record, click Request Item through Library Express. You may need to scroll down a bit to find it in the book record.


"Request Item through Library Express" blue button highlighted in book record for "Carry On, Warrior"


Tip! You'll then be taken to your Library Express account where you will complete and submit the request for books not currently owned by EKU Libraries.


The below screencast reviews this process and goes into more detail on using your Library Express account to submit the book request.
