Search the Library Catalog


Distance Students: Please note that our online catalog lists our electronic book collection, also known as eBooks on EBSCOhost. Distance students can not access electronic books through the book catalog. Instead, if you want to view anything labeled as an Electronic Resource or Computer File, you will need to search for that book using the eBooks logo below. This only affects electronic books.

eBooks on EBSCOhost (formerly NetLibrary) is a collection of ebooks available for Wayland students and faculty to "check out" and read online. Distance and off-campus patrons will need their EzProxy username and password to access these books. Contact a WBU librarian (lrcref@wbu.edu) if you need to confirm your EzProxy username and password.

Request Form

The materials request form serves two purposes. For Plainview students, this is the form used to order Interlibrary Loan items. For distance students, this is the primary form for requesting books or videos to be sent directly to students free of charge.

New Books

If you are interested in the latest books and videos added to our library collection, you have found the right list. Our new books list is divided by subject area and all the new materials are located on the first floor on the new books shelf.

Local Area Libraries

In addition to the resources and services available to distance students through WBU's Learning Resources Center in Plainview, TX, we have made arrangements for distance students to use local libraries in your area. Click here for a list of those libraries, including contact information and links to their websites.

World Cat

Think of World Cat as a super catalog. It references books, videos, and more for libraries around the world. If you do not find enough resources in our local collection, you can search WorldCat and borrow items from other libraries through interlibrary loan.

TexShare

For our Texas residents, the TexShare program allows patrons to checkout materials from various participating libraries. Wayland participates in the TexShare program and all Wayland faculty, staff, and students are permitted to apply for a TexShare Card.
