New Process for Summit Item Requests

Image

Beginning January 20, 2015, Summit item requests will be done directly in the UO Libraries' LibrarySearch interface. 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.
