Student studying The library is open longer for your finals study sessions!

Bring your own laptop since there are only six computers in this joint space. A printer is available.

You may have noticed a lot of ebooks popping up in the library’s catalog–we have over 80,000 now! While they are often convenient and just what you need, other times you really want the printed material.
Search for the book in the Summit catalog. Once you’ve verified the title and author, check the Edition/Format field. If it says eBook, click on ‘View all editions and formats.’ Select an alternate edition or format
Now find the Book editions (meaning it’s a physical item, not digital). Choose the one from the Summit collection if possible.
Continue by using the Request Summit Item or the Request from interlibrary loan buttons, and signing in. Before completing the request, make sure to indicate that you want only this edition. This confirms to library staff that you have seen the ebook we have and you want the physical copy.

The system that allows requesting of Summit materials is undergoing an upgrade during the overnight hours of April 30-May 1. It’s scheduled to be down from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m. at the latest. You will still be able to search and view the Summit catalog (as well as our own local library catalog), and you can request materials via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Once the system is back up, library staff will reroute to the Summit system any ILL requests that can be filled more quickly and cheaply through our regional partner libraries.
This downtime will not affect delivery of any requests that are already in the system.

Biography Reference Center serves up detailed and concise biographies, in full-text, from respected reference sources and magazine articles. In addition to searching by name for a known individual, you can discover notable people by searching fields or browsing categories. Search fields include profession or activity, nationality or U.S. ethnicity, gender, lifespan, and places of birth and death. Over 30 genre categories cluster together people who have commonalities even when their professions diverge: for example, Activists & Reformers, Business Leaders, Obama Administration, or World War II.

bagel.jpg Leave No Trace are principles of outdoor ethics that help people enjoy public lands in a way that minimizes environmental impact. We encourage applying these principles to the library setting, especially in regards to having food and drink. The primary goal is to ensure both the comfort of library users and a long life for library collections, furnishings, and equipment.
- Plan accordingly: If you do carry in food or drinks, avoid messy foods that may damage library material and facilities or be disruptive to others, and have drinks in containers unlikely to spill.
- Dispose of recyclables and waste properly.
- Leave what you find: Leave library resources, furnishings, and equipment as you found them–or in better condition than you found them.
- Be considerate of other visitors: Respect nearby library users, the next library user who will use your space, and the next generation of library users.
- Report accidents to library staff as soon as possible.
- Use of tobacco in any form is prohibited throughout the Hamersly Library. Smoking areas are designated to the south of both outside entrances.
- Alcohol is strictly prohibited. The library complies with WOU’s alcohol policy.
- The library reserves the right to ask patrons to eat specific foods elsewhere.
