Primo Library Search is a Chemeketa Community College library database used to find books, articles, and media in online and physical formats. It is the only library database that searches for print books, magazines and DVDs in the library's collection. It also finds materials in Summit libraries.
If you wanted to check out a copy of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, you would use Primo Library Search to determine if Chemeketa Community College library owns a copy. If you wanted the March 2020 issue of Sports Illustrated, you would use Primo Library Search to determine if the library subscribes to Sports Illustrated and if so, whether or not the March 2020 issue is available to checkout.
Primo Library Search also searches for articles, books and media available in electronic formats in most of the other databases Chemeketa subscribes to.

Summit is the system used to request books and other items from 37 college and university libraries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. You must be logged into the Primo library search to see Summit links.
Any item in the library search results that says Check holdings is a potential Summit Plus physical item request.
You can check on your your request in your Library Account.
You can renew your Summit book by signing into your library account in Primo or from the Library Account button on the library home page. Note: If the item has been requested by a user of the library that has lent it, renewal will be blocked.
