Welcome to the Pumerantz Library, COMP-NW students! We offer you the same resources and services we offer our Pomona students, though the process for accessing them is a little different. Read more below and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Access to Electronic Resources

COMP-NW students have access to a number of electronic books, journals, and databases. For more information, click here. When you try to access the electronic resources (either on-campus or off-campus), you will get a login screen. Enter your WesternU username and password (the same one you use to access Blackboard and your WesternU e-mail).

If you have trouble with the electronic resources, check out the troubleshooting page or contact the library.

Books by Mail

First-year and second-year COMP-NW students can check out books from
the Pumerantz Library. Books are mailed to and from the Lebanon campus bookstore
at no charge.

Students on rotations can have books mailed to them at no charge, but are responsible
for return postage.


  • You can check out 2 books at a time and have them out for 6 weeks, with one renewal
    if no one else has placed a hold on the book. (Maximum of 12 weeks.)

    • Be sure to mention that you are a COMP-NW student in the notes section.

Access to Other Libraries

Pumerantz Library has agreements with the Lebanon Public Library and the Samaritan Health Services libraries. You can use the Lebanon Public Library, including the small WesternU print collection, anytime it is open. You can use the books, computers, and study space at the Samaritan Health Services libraries as long as you show your WesternU student ID.
