Requesting from Summit

If OSU does not have a book that you need in the library catalog, you may be able to place a Summit request.

Summit requests are for books, and a few libraries lend special material like videos, but not for volumes of journals or copies of articles. Books have a loan period of 42 days and special material has a loan period of 6 days. Renewals are not offered for any material requested through Summit.

  1. Sign in to the 1Search catalog.
  2. Find the book, video, journal, etc. you want.
  3. If available at OSU Libraries, place a local request.  If not available, select "Place Summit Request".
  4. Select your pickup location, and indicate if a specific volume is needed (for multi-volume books). Please submit a separate request for each volume of a multi-volume set when you want more than one volume.
  5. If the request can't be filled through Summit, you will receive an email. The email will have a link that will allow you to submit a request through ILL (ILL account required).
  6. If the request is successful, you will receive an email when the item is available for pickup. Off-campus users will have the items shipped to them via FedEx.
