Resources and services for Webster University.

General information on requesting materials

The Webster University Library helps students, faculty, and staff worldwide borrow or obtain a copy of material 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 Library Services to find out more.

To request to borrow DVDs 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.

Borrow materials from the Library catalog

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.




Request books or articles

If the full-text is not available online, see our Borrowing & Returns page to learn how the library can help students, faculty and staff to obtain the text (at no cost to you).

Finding or requesting full-text articles

From a library database

When the PDF or HTML full-text is not available in one of our databases, use the "Full Text Finder" button. Full Text Finder will allow you to link to the article in another database. If no full text is available you may request an electronic copy of the article through Interlibrary Loan.

From another source (e.g. online, Google Scholar)

Many articles that you find online may require payment (aka paywall) to download the article. In many cases the library can get the article for you for free to keep you from having to pay out of pocket. For more information, please visit our:
