How to get a print book

Often WOU will have immediate access to the electronic edition of a book, but perhaps you want to trade in the convenience for the focus you can get with a print book. Here's how to make that happen: 

  1. Open the Details tab of the ebook record. 
  2. Click on the Author's name. 
  3. From the list of author's works, find the title you want with the book (not ebook) format. 
  4. Click on the Get It tab and then Request Item (about 5 days) to initiate a Summit loan.

Finding Books, E-books, and other material

Search for books, e-book, articles, and other material at Western Oregon University, Summit, and beyond. 



NOTE: You can read e-books on any computer or download to your digital device. See: Using eBooks @ WOU
