Along with the rest of campus, Hamersly Library will be closed the week of December 22nd. Combined with our shorter intersession hours, this means that the library will be closed Saturday, December 20th through Sunday, December 28th.

You’ll still have access to all electronic resources during this time, including ebooks through Primo, databases (including streaming multimedia content from Films on Demand, Theater in Video, and Classical Music Library), and electronic journal access.

You are also welcome to request items during the closure through the standard channels. Library staff will process the requests once we reopen on Dec 29th. Thanks for your patience!

See our calendar for all the library’s hours – both during the term and during intersessions.

Happy end of term, and Happy Holidays!

How to order a print book when Hamersly has the ebook

You may have noticed a lot of ebooks popping up in the library’s catalog–we have over 80,000 now! While they are often convenient and just what you need, other times you really want the printed material.

Search for the book in the Summit catalog. Once you’ve verified the title and author, check the Edition/Format field.  If it says eBook, click on ‘View all editions and formats.’ Select an alternate edition or format

Now find the Book editions (meaning it’s a physical item, not digital).  Choose the one from the Summit collection if possible. 

Continue by using the  Request Summit Item or the Request from interlibrary loan buttons, and signing in.  Before completing the request, make sure to indicate that you want only this edition.  This confirms to library staff that you have seen the ebook we have and you want the physical copy.
