The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Library eagerly supports teaching and learning at the College by ensuring that students, faculty, and staff can locate, evaluate, and use information effectively. In addition to a rapidly growing physical collection, the library provides online access to articles, journals, newspapers, eBooks, and streaming video from over 50 online research databases.
Individual research assistance is available during library hours in person, by phone, chat, and e-mail, while an interactive FAQ is available for “self-help” assistance on the library’s website. CWI librarians also offer customized information literacy instruction sessions upon request for any college course or group. The library provides specialized services including hold requests, a postage-paid mailing service, expedited ordering and processing for any requested item, and interlibrary loan. A current CWI ID card is requested to check out materials from the library. All library services are free to students, faculty, and staff.
The CWI Library has two physical locations: the main library in the Nampa Campus Multipurpose Building (NCMP) and a branch library at the Ada County Campus Pintail Center (APIN). Both locations offer research help, study space, computer stations, and a selection of textbooks for student use. The main library additionally offers a lounge area, two reservable group study rooms, a quiet study room, and a library instruction lab.
