You have the option to borrow material outside of the University of Oregon through two services: Summit and Interlibrary Loan.
The Summit program allows us to share materials with participating college and university library partners throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
The Interlibrary Loan progam allows us to share materials with participating libraries around the world.
If an item is not available via UO Libraries, there may be an option to request it from other libraries.
Under the heading Request from other libraries, select Get a physical copy for a print item or Get a digital chapter or article for an electronic article or book chapter.
For physical items, set the pickup location to the branch of your choice. You will be notified by email when the item has arrived.
For electronic articles/chapters, you will receive the item via email notification.
If our Summit/ILL team cannot borrow the item you want, contact your librarian.
