Books and eBooks
Library Catalog Search
Quick search for books, electronic books, videos, and more.*
*Distance students can not access electronic books through the book catalog above, including anything labeled as an Electronic Resource or Computer File. Instead they must search our eBooks on EBSCOhost catalog via their Blackboard login.
eBook on EBSCOhost
eBooks on EBSCOhost is a collection of ebooks available for Wayland students and faculty to "check out" and read online. You will need your Blackboard username and password to access these books. Contact WBUonline support if you have issues logging in.
Wayland students also have access to the following eBook catalogs.
SpringerLink provides over 4,000 ebooks in the sciences and humanities.
Ebook Central provides ebooks on several subjects with a focus on science and technology. It also provides a large selection of ebooks in Spanish.
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.
Wayland students can request physical books through interlibrary load, and books will be shipped to External students free of charge.
Materials Request Form
Note: ILL services for books are available. Due to current circumstances, books may
take longer to arrive. Please plan your research accordingly.
The materials request form serves is avaliable to both Plainview and External students.
- Plainview students, this is the form used to order Interlibrary Loan items.
- External students, this is the primary form for requesting books or videos to be sent directly to students free of charge.
Commentary Copy Requests
Distance students may request copies of commentaries sent to them. Provide us with your desired passages from the Bible and which commentaries you need, and we will provide photocopies of the relevant sections of each commentary to your inbox.
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.
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.
The Texas State Library has temporarily suspended the TexShare Card Program until
Governor Abbott releases the state of disaster declared on the State of Texas on March
13. If you wish to use another Texas library for research, please call that library
ahead of time to find out if you can do so.
