If you need materials beyond what is found in the ECU library catalog, you may request them through the interlibrary loan service or directly visit other libraries yourself. 

ECU has cooperative agreements with the UNC System and many other colleges and universities in North Carolina to make borrowing directly from their libraries easy and free for ECU students, faculty, and staff. Visit our Cooperative Lending Agreements webpage for details and links to these participating libraries.

If you live near the ECU campus in Pitt County, North Carolina, you may use the local public library, Sheppard Memorial Library, as well. 

No matter where you live,, will show you the catalog holdings from thousands of libraries around the world -- millions of books, dissertations, journals, manuscripts, maps, sound recordings, musical scores, films, archives, and computer files from academic, public, special, and national libraries. You may then use the interlibrary loan service to ask to borrow the material, or if you are nearby or able to travel to a library that has the material you want then you could visit that library to consult the materials on-site or ask that library you are eligible to borrow the material.

If you would like assistance searching the ECU library catalog, visit our catalog FAQ or ask a librarian. We can also assist you with searching WorldCat and the catalogs of other libraries.
