WSU Everett students have access to the same online resources available to WSU Pullman students. This includes databases, eBooks, and online full-text journal articles.
There are different ways to search for academic journal articles:
Some of the major article databases will provide a link to the full text of articles right in the citation record by giving you either a PDF or HTML link.
Other times, you will not see a full-text link to the article you want. In that case, you will need to look for the Find It button to locate electronic or print versions of your item, or perhaps order the item.
The Find It button usually looks like the image below, although there are a few databases where it may appear as a link or have different colors.
If you are using Google Scholar, you will not see the Find It button, but you will often see a link that reads: "Find It at WSU Libraries."
If you cannot locate the full text of an article readily available on the page, the first step to accessing it is clicking on the "Find It" link.
WSU Everett students have access to the same eBooks and online media available to WSU Pullman students, but sometimes you may want a print book, DVD, or CD to work with.
To request home delivery of a book you find in Search It, follow these steps:
If a book you need is not available from a WSU library or any Summit library, you can request that it be borrowed from another library for your use via an Interlibrary Loan (ILL). To make an ILL request you need to be logged in to Search It - if a book is not available, you will see a link that says "Request through InterLibrary Loan -- Pullman." Clicking that link will take you to the WSU Pullman ILLiad site, where you need to log in with your WSU Network ID again.
The first time you use ILLiad you need to create an account in the system. When filling out the "Personal Info" to create an Illiad account, Everett students should select “electronic” for "Preferred Article Delivery Method" and “mail to address” for Preferred Loan Delivery Method.
When you request a book or piece of media, the WSU Libraries cover the cost of shipping the items to you and the costs of return postage. Make sure to keep the postage-paid address labels and USPS mailers that arrive with your requested items.
