Pulling back the curtain on ILL

Interlibrary loanYou may know about Summit, the “lending club” of academic libraries in our region, but in this term’s library newsletter we pull back the curtain a bit to talk about the bigger picture of resource sharing among libraries. The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) cooperative involves over 10,000 academic, public, and special libraries across the United States and the world!

Check out this story and more in the spring term issue of the Hamersly Library newsletter.

Campus Printing FAQ

print creditsHow much does printing cost? A single page (one side) of a black & white printout costs 1 print credit. A single color page (one side) printout costs 5 print credits. Students receive 225 print credits per term.

How do I know how many print credits I have? Log in to the WOU Portal and your balance will be displayed on your homepage.

How do I buy more print credits? Purchase additional credits through WolfWeb under the Student Menu. They start at 50 credits for $2.50 and go up from there. When you buy additional credits they are immediately available for use.

What if I don’t use all of my print credits? Whatever credits you don’t use roll over to the next term. However, accounts are wiped clean before each Fall term begins, and everyone starts again with 225 print credits.

Getting Summit materials over the summer

reading in the sunDid you know that you can arrange to have your Summit requests delivered to another Summit library?

To do so, visit the circulation desk of the library where you’d like to pick up your Summit materials and ask to be “adopted” as a Summit Visiting Patron. Once you go through this process you can request Summit materials through either Hamersly or this other Summit library.
