Two important notes about getting materials through Summit over the summer:
–>If you will need Summit materials for the first few days of summer term (which starts June 26th), order them ASAP. Summit libraries are switching to a new courier vendor and because of this transition new Summit requests made after Friday, June 23rd will not leave libraries for delivery until Wednesday, July 5th.
–>Did 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.
Drop-in tutoring in the library starts this week. Hours for each subject vary, see below:
–>NEW: The Science Learning Center now offers tutoring for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Science classes at varying times in Room 124. See their website for spring term hours.
–>The Math Center offers free math tutoring at varying times in Room 228 for both Math classes and non-Math classes like statistics. See their website for spring term hours.
–>The Writing Center holds night hours Sun-Thurs from 7-10pm in Room 116. Writing tutors will work with you on writing projects for any course and any instruction level.
–>The English Tutoring Center holds night hours Mon-Thurs from 7-10pm in Room 228. Tutors can help international students with reading, listening to, and/or speaking English.
–>The Digital Media Center, located on the 2nd floor, offers help with technology-related class assignments. Hours this term: Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri 9am-1pm.
Check out our Textbooks Guide for options to buy, rent, and borrow textbooks for your classes this term.
You’ll also find info about where to sell your textbooks back once you’re done with them.
How 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.
Faculty, remember that the library is here to help you, too. Take a look at this handy guide to see how. It outlines the specific services we offer for faculty, as well as the ways we can help teach your students information literacy and research skills. Have a great term!
Need to create a video for a class assignment? Narrate a PowerPoint presentation? Record a screen capture using Camtasia? Create a website or online portfolio to help in your job search?
The Digital Media Center is here to help you with all of your digital project needs, from video and audio production and editing to website creation. Stop by the new and improved space on the 2nd floor of Hamersly to check it out!
And don’t forget about the two digital production rooms available for use by all students, faculty, and staff.

The Press will be closed all summer. Check this webpage for updates on when it will re-open and fall term hours. Happy summer!
Hamersly and The Press are both open later this week and next for your studying and caffeine needs. We will also have a bigger 24-hour space open for those who want to stay even later than our extended hours allow.
Wednesday, June 1st through Wednesday, June 8th, the main portion of the library will close at 1 a.m. (9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday), but HL 107 will remain open as additional 24-hour study space. Access to HL 107 will be available through the 24-hour student lounge.
The Press will also have extended hours and will be open on Fri and Sun during finals. Click the photo to the left for all the details.
Good luck with finals!
