Digital Access

Use your PUNetID to get eBooks, eJournals, and databases. Start by searching the catalog.

Request Articles & Loans

If you can't find something in our catalog, you can request these items via Interlibrary Loan, even if you are not close to campus! For articles and book chapters, PDFs will be delivered into your ILLiad account. For physical library materials, such as books and DVDs, our Interlibrary Loan team will send items right to your mailing address, free of charge. Before the due date, mail loans back to us with the free prepaid FedEx ground label in your package.

Nearby Libraries

You may have access to Summit Libraries in Oregon, Washington, or Idaho. Ask nearby libraries about their Visiting Summit Patron policies. Some libraries will "adopt" you as a patron so you can pick up Summit items.

Public or special libraries may also help. You can find them at WorldCat.
