LibrarySearch offers a streamlined interface for finding books and other media that combines the collections of UO Libraries and Summit libraries.
Authored books offer a chance to learn about a subject in depth. Edited books can provide a chapter or chapters targeted to your topic.

These materials are requested through Interlibrary Loan and may come from any library. Books and AV items arrive within an average of ten days.
