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.

You can now renew Summit materials through your online library account in the same way you renew WWU materials. Summit books check out for six weeks by default and can now be renewed for up to 12 weeks, while media materials check out for 6 days and can be renewed for up to 12 days. Renewal requests may be denied if there are any recalls or local holds pending at the owning library, so pay close attention to your due dates and watch for alerts when you initiate a Summit renewal.
