General information on requesting materials

The Webster University Library helps students, faculty, and staff worldwide borrow or obtain a copy of materials that either we own or is available from another library. This service is offered without charge but there may be limits due to location, copyright, etc.

Visit our Request Articles or books page to request the materials you need.

To request to borrow videos owned by the library, see below for borrowing materials listed in Webster's library catalog (available to U.S. only). Faculty teaching in the U.S.A. may reserve videos to show in their classroom using our DVD and Videotape Reservation Form.

If I find an article listed in a database but there's no full-text link, what do I do?

In most of our databases, you will probably see a link called "Article Linker" as in the example below. Click the Article Linker link to see how to obtain the full-text. For more information, visit our Article Linker guide.

How can I borrow materials listed in Webster's library catalog? (U.S. only)

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.
