Q. What does my library account do?

You can use your library account to save books to your eshelf, renew items, check on the status of requests, and check in on saved searches.


All students, faculty, and staff should have an account. Go to Research Central on the library's homepage and click the "My Account" link under the Research Central search bar. Enter your WWU username and password when prompted. 

If you have any problems, contact Circulation.

An account allows you to:

  • Check that your personal contact information is correct so that you receive library notifications! 
  • Renew a book from anywhere at any time.
  • Place a book that is checked out by someone else on hold so that you get it next.
  • Place a Summit Request.
  • Check your record for due items, available holds, etc.
  • Save your preferred searches
  • Use the 'add to eshelf' option to save titles to return to later. 

Login when you start to search the catalog to have access to full functionality. 

Once you are logged in, you can search the catalog and return to your account at any time by clicking on "My Account" at the top of the screen.
