WCU Doesn't Have the Book I'm Looking For

Start by going to the EZ-borrow service:

  • Then log in with the barcode from the back of your Ram Card. 
  • Once you’re logged in, enter the book’s title (add the author if it’s a common title) and hit search. 
  • On the left, look under Format and choose book, then click apply - this makes sure there are no ebooks (which aren't borrowable) in your results. 
  • Then all the results that match it will come  up –  hopefully your book will be in the results. If it is, click on the title. 
  • Then click on the Request link.

  • Click on New Requests, then select Book.
