AVAILABLE FROM SUMMIT LIBRARIES
Summit refers to a group of libraries in Washington and Oregon that partner with WSU to share resources. Summit items take about 3-5 business days to arrive at WSU. You will need to login with your network ID and password in order to request an item, and select a pick-up location. You can pick Summit items up at any campus library.
AVAILABLE FROM INTERLIBRARY LOAN
When an item is neither owned by WSU, or the Summit Libraries, you will see a red dot. These items will need to be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
In this case, you will have to try and request the item through Inter Library Loan. The time required for the request to be processed and received will vary according to whether the WSU Libraries are able to locate an institution willing to loan the item. You can begin the Inter Library Loan process by clicking "Request Item From Inter Library Loan." If you have never made an Inter Library Loan request before, the system will prompt you to sign up for the service, providing some basic information, such as your address, department, and phone number.
