Ordering Books for Delivery to Salem

You may request to have items - both WOU-owned and Summit materials - delivered to the Salem campus for pickup. 

Once you've found a WOU or Summit-owned item that you want, it's easy to request a delivery location.

If you're not already logged into your WOU account, you will be prompted to do so before making any type of request

Once you are logged in, you have request links. Depending on availability, you can either request WOU's copy, or a copy from a Summit partner.
