Summit items will continue to be discoverable in LibrarySearch, which will offer a link to "Place Summit request (about 5 days)." However, patrons will no longer need to log into a different system to place a Summit item request. Instead, the link in the "Get It" tab will provide a form with information about your item and a "Request" button.
