Departure of EWU Libraries from Spokane Academic Library

As of July 1, EWU Libraries will no longer have a presence at the Spokane Academic Library. We continue to welcome EWU students and faculty to use the Spokane Academic Library as valued members of the Spokane community.

What does this mean for EWU students and faculty?

  1. EWU students and faculty will no longer have access to the Spokane Academic Library’s 24/7 card access. Instead, they will need to use the library during staffed hours. (Generally 7:30am – 5pm, Monday through Friday during the academic year)
  2. EWU Library services – such as book pickup and reference service office hours – will be available at the EWU Spokane Catalyst building beginning fall of 2022. Location and service details are forthcoming.
  3. EWU students and faculty, including those at the Catalyst building, may apply for WSU Summit status at the library service desk, allowing access to WSU materials.

Learn more about accessing EWU’s library services: EWU School of Libraries Director Kelly Evans, for more information regarding this transition.

Reservable Study Rooms

Library group study rooms are now reservable by WSU and EWU affiliated users. The Library has six group study rooms available for use on the third floor, and students will now be able to reserve the rooms up to 14 days in advance for blocks of time up to 2 hours long. Rooms that are not reserved will continue to be available for walk-in use, but reservations will take priority. Learn how to make a reservation:
