Summit & Interlibrary Loan


Summit borrowing provides access to the combined library catalog of over 30 academic institutions in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, and Idaho). If you need an item that is not owned by the Hannon Library, you may be able to get it from a participating Summit library.

Summit resource sharing is available to SOU students, faculty, and staff, as well as visiting patrons from other Orbis Cascade Alliance institutions.

Summit borrowing provides physical materials (books, media, microfilm, etc) that are ready for pickup in about 5 days. Any digital access to articles or book chapters should be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan can also be used to request physical materials that are not available through Summit.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Hannon Library can connect SOU students, staff and faculty to physical and digital library materials from across the country and around the world through Interlibrary Loan.

This service is limited to SOU patrons, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Dramaturgs, and Courtesy Faculty members. Other courtesy borrowers and members of the public can place Interlibrary Loan requests through the Jackson County Library System.


If you have any resource sharing questions, please contact or 541-552-6823.
