This short video will show you how to use Library Search to discover books and articles in print and full text online at Chemeketa and many other libraries.
Summit is the system used to request books and other items from 38 college and university libraries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. You must be logged into the library search to see Summit links.
Tip: Use all lowercase letters for your My Chemeketa login name.
Please note that an item that is on the shelf is not always requestable. Check your My Chemeketa e-mail for news about your request.
Do the public libraries in Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service use the same online system as Chemeketa Community College?
No. The CCRLS public libraries use a different system for their catalog. You can see public items, however, by choosing the CCRLS Public Libraries scope from the dropdown in the Chemeketa library search.
Can I still have items sent from the public library to a Chemeketa campus library?
Yes! Items requested from CCRLS public libraries can be picked up at Chemeketa Salem (CCC) or Yamhill (YVC) campuses.
How can students access public library resources?
There are two ways. By requesting as a Chemeketa student/employee, or by using a CCRLS public library card.
With Chemeketa credentials:
Request in the CCRLS Public Libraries scope by clicking Get It tab under your item and following the link that says, "CCRLS Bridge Request."
This will open another window and display the results of a search in the CCRLS Bridge.
Click on the desired title in the CCRLS Bridge results to see full information about the item and requestability.
This will open a new page.
If a copy of your item is requestable you will see a pulldown menu to select your pickup location. For most items, "volume needed" amy be left blank. You can use that space if you are requesting an item with parts, or an issue of a magazine.
Your item will be sent to the library of the Chemeketa campus you selected. You can check it out on your ID card.
With a CCRLS public library card:
Request in the CCRLS Public Libraries scope by clicking the Details tab and following the "Request this item using a CCRLS Public Library card" link. On the screen that opens, click the Place Hold button and enter your public library card barcode number and PIN.
How can I get more information about the Public Library system and service?

In the example pictured, after locating the Reference shelves of the library, read the decimal number first, then the next line. This call number represents a dictionary of English rhymes by an author named Upton.
