The Library also houses different collections of physical materials. Some of our books, magazines, and journals are available for check-out, and others are only for use in the Library.
For students who wish to check out materials not in-house, the Library is part of the Yavapai Library Network (YLN) with which ERAU shares a library catalog. ERAU students may check out many of the items from any of the more than 40 libraries by using EagleSearch from the Library homepage or by using the Library Catalog to find information resources. Items located at other YLN Libraries may be borrowed and sent to Embry-Riddle by placing a hold request using the Library catalog.
The Library catalog will indicate where an item is located, access to digital resources, and information about items located at other YLN member libraries.
Students may also check out materials outside of YLN by using the Library’s Interlibrary Loan service free of charge.
