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.
If available at OSU Libraries, place a local request. If not available, click on "Place Summit Request".
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.
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).
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.
