Reading a Library Search Book Result

Printed books that say "Available" under the description will show a location in the library and a call number. Most of the books that can be checked out are in the General Collection, at the far end of the library. The call number is shown in parentheses after the library location. Use the call number to find the item on the shelf.

Electronic books say "Online access" or "Full text available" under the description. "Online access" is a link that will take you directly to the book. "Full text available" will take you to a link that you can follow to read the book.

Summit

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.
