Requesting Materials From Other Libraries

Summit Plus lets you request books, DVDs, and other physical items, as well as articles, directly from the Primo Library Search.

  • Articles are delivered electronically; see instructions
  • We will send books or other physical items to you by postal mail
  • When the item arrives at our library, we will email your Chemeketa email account to ask your mailing address
  • Due to more limited courier schedule and quarantine requirements, you should allow approximately two weeks to receive physical materials through Summit
  • Summit books are now renewable!

You can use Ask a Librarian, below, to get help in finding alternative resources online.

Summit
