Requesting Books through Summit
Summit Borrowing allows you to get books from the other libraries that belong to the same consortium of academic libraries in the Pacific Northwest. Instead of just one library, it's like you've got 39! Books take 3-5 working days to arrive, at which point they will be held for you at the circulation desk for one week, where you can pick them up with your ID card. You may keep Summit books for 6 weeks; there are no renewals. You can see your Summit requests by clicking the 'My Account' link when logged in to Primo.
To request an item, click the "Request Item from SUMMIT' link, then enter any comments or request a specific volume if need be, and then click 'request,' as seen below:
