We will send any Webster/Eden-owned circulating materials (those with a Status of "Available") to our US extended campus students, faculty, and staff with a return mailer. In the library catalog, do a search and bring up the full record for an item. Click on the “Request” link. You will be asked to enter your name and your Webster identification number followed by the letters “EWL” (e.g. 1234567ewl). Next you will see a drop-down list of pickup locations. Choose “Webster Univ US Sites”. This option will tell us to send the item to you at the address we have on record.
