Research for eLearning Students: If You Live Outside the Alliance

A guide for students that gives tips for doing research, obtaining materials, and getting help in the online environment

Obtaining Pyhsical Materials

If you live outside the Summit library area, you may use the interlibrary loan service at your local library to request books in  Chemeketa’s library (or other libraries). Articles in journals and magazines may also be requested on interlibrary loan.

Chemeketa does not charge for interlibrary loans, but some libraries do. Ask your local librarian about any fees.

Good News!
