The Orbis Cascade Alliance is a resource sharing service that provides access to print materials and media from 38 universities, colleges, and community colleges in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Requests submitted through the Alliance are referred to as Summit requests.

Summit is available to currently registered OSU students, faculty and staff with a valid ONID account. For information about your ONID, please visit OSU Network ID.

If you are an Ecampus student or remote Faculty or staff, please see: Using the library from a distance or check out this LibGuide.

  • Indicate if a specific volume is needed.
  • To request multiple volumes from a multi-volume set, submit a separate Summit request for each volume.
