Finding Books

Note for Summit borrowing: the login process will ask you which Summit college or university you attend; scroll down to Southern Oregon University to select it or type it in the box above the menu. Check the option to stay logged on if you will do another search in Summit during this session.  You will be prompted for your last name, then the form asks for your ID or barcode. Instead, use the first part of your SOU e-mail, the same as your login for My SOU.  This should take you to the Request this item page with information about the book, a place to ask for a particular volume (multi-volume sets only), your pick-up location (set to SOU Circulation in Hannon Library), and, your e-mail, which will be used to notitfy you when the book arrives (usually about 5 days).  Give the e-mail address you are most likely to check.
