Search It is the best database to find items that WSU Libraries have access to. Use the “WSU Global Campus Delivery” location option when requesting items.
If you are not able to place a request in Search It, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. Make sure you’re logged into Search It to see the “Request through Interlibrary Loan'' link. This will take you to the WSU Pullman Interlibrary Loan site and you’ll have to log in again. If it’s your first time using Interlibrary Loan, you’ll have to register an account.
There is no charge to request items through the library!
After you place your request, it will take 2-3 working days for us to mail your items to you. If you requested an item from another library, it will take a little longer because they will need to mail it to us.
We can’t mail items outside of the United States.
You will receive your items in a Priority Mail flat rate box through USPS. Keep this box to return your items later!
Inside of your box, you’ll find a postage-paid address label. If you don’t see these in your box or misplace them, you can request a new address label.
When it’s time to return your items:
Repackage them in the box they came in
Stick the included label to the box
Drop the box off at the post office
If the box gets damaged, you can get a free replacement at the post office.

WSU belongs to a group of academic libraries (see list below) in Washington, Oregon, and the University of Idaho called Summit. You can check out items from any of the 35+ libraries through Search It or in person with your CougarCard.
You can access many e-books through Search It. You can read them online or download them to your computer, phone, or e-reader to access them offline.
