You must log into the Primo Library Search in order to see request links. If Chemeketa's Yamhill Campus Library in McMinnville, OR, or the Woodburn Public Library is convenient for you, you can use the Request link in the Library Search to have a Chemeketa item sent to Yamhill or Woodburn. You must sign into the search with your My Chemeketa credentials to see the Request button. Use lowercase letters for your login name.

If you live in a place that is near any  library in the Orbis Cascade Alliance (Summit)   see map and list, you can become a visiting patron at that library and request items be sent there from Chemeketa or any other Summit library. To be adopted by a Summit library, go to that library with a photo ID (University, College, or State Issued) , and be prepared to signinto your account on the Chemeketa Primo Library Search. Your login name and password are the same as for My Chemeketa. When the staff at the library have verified that you are a  qualified student, they will issue you a credential you can use to request and to check out materials.

When you look for books or other items in that library's search, log in with your visiting patron credentials to see Request Summit item links in the Get it section of a library record.

Good News!

You can filter by Chemeketa Online resources in the Chemeketa Primo library search results, or use one of our databases to find over a hundred thousand e-books, millions of articles, or a range of streaming videos.

Use your My Chemeketa User Name and password if asked for a login.
