First, click on the link: "__ Summit Libraries have this item." This will show you the libraries within the Summit consortium that have this book. If you see that the OSU libraries own the material, you will need to request it through OASIS. Otherwise, you may request it through Summit by clicking on the link: "REQUEST THIS ITEM".

Select "Oregon State U" as the institution with which you are affiliated. Even if you are physically at another institution, if you are taking an OSU Distance Education course, select OSU as your institution.

If you want items sent to your home address leave "Oregon State U" as your Pickup Institution, select "Extended Campus" as your Pickup Location, and fill in the appropriate personal information. To have items delivered for pick up at one of the branch campuses, choose the location where you want to pick up the item and fill in the appropriate information. To have items delivered to another Summit library select another Pickup Institution and Pickup Location.
