    The Riverpoint Campus Library collection includes approximately 10,000 books and a relatively small number of videos.  Approximately half of the collection belongs to Eastern Washington University and half to Washington State University. The Riverpoint Campus Library collects materials that support the academic programs offered at the Riverpoint campus: the design disciplines (e.g., landscape architecture), business and public administration, education, nursing, pharmacy, allied health sciences, etc. WSU students may borrow EWU items and vice versa. However, loan periods will vary, depending upon the affiliation of the borrower and the ownership of the item.

    Books and Videos

    To locate a book or video, either search the EWU Library Catalog and limit your search to Riverpoint, or search the EWU WorldCat Local catalog.  A search of WorldCat Local includes EWU and WSU holdings (although not limited to Riverpoint) as well as Summit (a combined system of 30+ academic libraries in Washington and Oregon) and other libraries worldwide.  You can also use WSU's Search It catalog and limit to Riverpoint, for WSU holdings at Riverpoint.

    The reference books are shelved on the main floor in Room 200 of the Academic Center Building and do not circulate.


    Search for articles using one of the many subscription databases provided by EWU libraries.  The full text of articles is often provided directly within the database.  If full text is not available for a particular article, click on the Check for Full Text button and follow the instructions.

    To determine availability of an article outside of one of our databases, first check to see if the article you want is available electronically or physically at Riverpoint. If you have a citation to an article, check:

    If the article is not available online or in the library, you may request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Talk to a librarian about setting up an ILL account.

    If item is available at Riverpoint, the patron is responsible for photocopying or scanning it.
