Spokane Academic Library

Supporting the health sciences programs of Washington State University in Spokane.

Circulation

Identification

Users must present a valid WSU, other Summit university, or Community Library borrower’s card to check out materials. Always bring your WSU, other Summit university, or Community Library card with you.

If you would like someone other than you to pick up your library holds, please fill out a Library Designee Authorization Form at the Library’s circulation desk. This ensures that unauthorized people are not able to access your library materials.

Loan periods

Loan periods vary in length. The libraries in Pullman, Cheney, and at the WSU Spokane campus all have different circulation policies.

Course Reserve materials

Course Reserves are loaned for 2 hours at a time. This ensures that the materials are widely available to students who need to use the materials for their courses.

Equipment Checkouts

We offer laptops, iPads, calculators, headphones, and some charging cables to WSU-affiliated borrowers. For more information see our Computers and Technology Page or check at the circulation desk.

Return

Return books and multimedia in the Library book drops or at the circulation desk. Book drops are located (1) outside the Student Activity Center’s exterior doors on the northwest side of the building, and (2) at the Library entrance on the second floor of the Student Activity Center. The book drop at the Library entrance is available only during staffed hours, so items returned outside of those hours can only be returned in the outdoor book drop. Equipment and Course Reserves must be returned at the Library’s circulation desk (not in the book drop).

Items checked out from WSU Pullman or from other Summit Libraries may be returned at the Spokane Academic Library.
