FYS 270 - Illuminating the Code of Dance: Finding Books at WOU

Find Books, E-books, & Other Materials Online

The WOU catalog provides access to our print and electronic books, online videos, and articles.  

Ebooks, online videos, and most articles are available immediately via links in the catalog. For print books, you'll see an option to request a portion of the book as a digital file. Borrowing from other libraries (Summit and interlibrary loan) is currently suspended. We'll let campus know when it has resumed.

Please visit our page on books, ebooks and other materials to learn how to search for and access WOU library materials. If you have any questions that aren't answered there, please get in touch with us.
