University of Washington Begins Lending Some Bound/Unbound Periodicals Through Summit

Date: 04/22/2008
As a member of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortium of academic libraries in the Pacific Northwest, the Library gains access to the collections of 35 member libraries. This translates into access to over 8 million titles through Summit. Now, the University of Washington Libraries will start lending some of its bound and unbound periodicals through Summit. This pilot will be held during the Spring quarter, then will assessed to determine if the pilot should continue. The periodicals will circulate through Summit with a shorter loan rule of 3 days with one renewal. UW's notice about this change states: "We have benefited from the generosity of those Alliance libraries which already lend such materials and are pleased to expand the range of materials we lend as well. Summit borrowing is a wonderful example of regional collaboration and its value to users is very clear." Thank you to UW Libraries for providing this expanded access to resources for us during the Spring quarter!
