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

Be sure to start at the EKU Libraries page to open WorldCat.org.

Log in using your EKU username and password. (Need help logging in?)

 

EKU CAS log in screen

 

Search for the book not currently available at EKU Libraries.

 

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

 

Find the book record in the search results. Tip! Sometimes records for print, CD and eBook versions will appear in the results. Be sure to click on the format you want, which is usually print book.

Click on the Find Full Text at EKU Libraries link to request the book. You'll use this method if you want EKU Libraries to buy the book. You'll also use this method if you just want EKU Libraries to borrow the book from another library.
