This information is for on-ground students who can pick up materials in person at Concordia University Libraries in Portland, Oregon.

What is interlibrary loan (ILL)?

Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows Concordia students, faculty, and staff to borrow from other libraries if items are not available (in print or online) at Concordia University Libraries.

Concordia University Libraries offers two types of ILL services for on-ground students:

Summit

Summit is regional Interlibrary Loan.  Concordia University is a member of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a network of 38 academic libraries in Oregon, Washington and Idaho that lends books and other physical items through a shared catalog called Summit. Because we are connected by a courier system, Summit requests are received faster than other Interlibrary Loan requests, and you can keep them for up to 6 weeks.

To request items from Summit, use the Library Catalog, aka OneSearch

  1. Sign in, and find an item.
  2. Click Request from Summit.

You will have to reorder their items if you do not pick them up in time.
