The Spokane Academic Library is jointly operated by Eastern Washington University and Washington State University. The library also supports several University of Washington health sciences programs at the downtown campus. Located on the second and third floors of the Academic Center, the library provides access to numerous online subscription periodicals and other e-resources; a small circulating collection of books, videos, and print periodicals; and a small physical reference collection. Computer workstations in the library, as well as laptops that can be checked out for varying periods, provide access to online library resources for students, faculty and staff affiliated with academic programs at EWU Spokane. EWU students may borrow WSU books and vice versa. However, loan periods will vary, depending on the affiliation of the borrower and the ownership of the book. Professional reference librarians provide support for academic programs located on the EWU Spokane campus.
WSU and EWU students, faculty and staff at the EWU Spokane campus may request books from the JFK Library in Cheney and the WSU libraries in Pullman, Tri Cities and Vancouver using WSU’s Griffin catalog and EWU’s library catalog, and may request books and other materials from more than thirty academic libraries in Washington and Oregon through the Summit system. EWU and WSU faculty, staff and students may also request books and other materials through Interlibrary Loan and free, digitized copies of periodical articles.
