What is Summit?

Summit is a resource sharing service that provides access to print and media materials from academic libraries throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. See here for a map of participating libraries. This service is available free of charge to any currently enrolled student, staff, or faculty member (current or emeritus) with a valid WWU account, as well as to Visiting Summit patrons. Summit works hand-in-hand with your circulation account, so no special registration is required.* 

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Summit services are currently available via Western Libraries' on-site pick up or mail delivery services. For more information about using Summit, please see the most up-to-date information about requesting and borrowing Summit items at Requesting Library Materials for On-Site Pickup or Mail. For the most current information about library services and programs, please see Western Libraries COVID-19 Updates and Resources.
