Big changes coming soon!

Monday, Dec 1, you’ll all be looking at a new Summit catalog!  For those of you unfamiliar with Summit, this is a resource that provides access to library holdings throughout Oregon and Washington combining materials from regional academic libraries into a single catalog.  In other words, Summit is a very powerful tool that allows you to search and request from a huge combined collection owned by 36 academic libraries throughout the Northwest!  

The new Summit interface will include a significantly improved search function that will make it even easier for you to find and request the books, videos, etc. that you need.  With one search, the Summit catalog will present results from the region’s member libraries, followed by results from libraries around the world. In all, the Summit catalog will provide access to over 107 million library records.  Can you believe this!?

You may find a link to the Summit catalog via our library’s main page, under “Books & More: Library Catalogs.

Oh, and by the way… Happy Thanksgiving!  Check this cute video by clicking on the link below:

If you try a search, you will now see that Summit presents results not only from the collections of the  Orbis Cascade Alliance’s 36 Oregon and Washington member libraries, but also from libraries all around the world!  In all, the new catalog gives you access to over 107 million library records that you may easily search and request for FREE! Who needs Amazon.com!?   […]
