Profile of WSU Libraries

  • Belong to the prestigious Association of Research Libraries (ARL), an organization of the 124 largest university libraries in N. America.
  • Are a member of the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA), a consortium of 29 university research libraries, which provides cost-saving subscriptions to electronic and print journals and databases and access to materials we otherwise would not be able to obtain.
  • Have more than 2 million books, 30,000 journal subscriptions and 35,000 maps which support all of WSU's teaching and research programs. Approximately 35,000 books are added annually.
  • Offer electronic access to the full text of more than 30,000 digital resources, including current journals; books; documents; and databases. These resources are not free – WSU Libraries have to pay more than $3 million a year to access them.
  • Have established collections in high-demand areas – biotechnology, nursing, management information systems, English as a second language, special education, viticulture, and enology – which have been identified as important to the development of the state’s economy.
