Search the Library's Catalog

The WSU Library has a modest collection of researched materials. For most research topics, you will be able to locate credible books within our collection. Use the WSU Library Catalog (linked below) to locate books in our library. 

Krueger Library Doesn't Have It?

InterLibrary Loan - Resource Sharing - Document Delivery

For some topics you may discover that the Krueger library does not own enough books or other materials for you to develop a thoughtful and in-depth understanding of the topic. The Krueger Library has a modest collection of books, ebooks, journals, databases, and other resources. We are fortunate, though, that when the Krueger Library does not own the book, article, films, music score, CD, or other materials, you may request it from another library using the Krueger Library Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service. This service is not for textbooks; textbooks are available at the WSU bookstore.

When searching for books, use the database called Worldcat (linked below). You will also find instructions on how to request books through WorldCat on the Find Books (Step-by-Step) Guide.  You can also directly link to our ILL Form through our catalog interface.
