The Basics.

Did You Know?

* For distance students, the Pacific University Library will mail books to you.  If you have questions about this service, please contact Interlibrary Services at 503-352-1413 or 503-352-1410.

* If you live near a Summit library, you can visit that library and use your Pacific University ID to set up an account.  After that, you will be able to use the Summit catalog and have books sent to that library for you to pick up.

* Books requested through ILLiad (interlibrary loan) may take 2-3 weeks to arrive.  Start your research early! 

Library Catalog

When you need a book (print or electronic) the best place to turn is the Library catalog - called Boxer Search.  At Pacific, you have access to 3 catalogs in one -  our own Library catalog, the Summit library catalog (a joint catalog of 37 libraries in Oregon and Washington) and WorldCat (a global library catalog). 

You can request materials (non-article) from any of these libraries - Summit will take about 3-5 days to get here, and WorldCat requests may take 2 weeks to arrive, so plan accordingly.

You find the book and if it's not on the shelf, or you cannot access an ebook - we'll get it to you!
