Yes! If you want something we don't own, we can always order it for you from another library at no cost to you.
How can you tell whether we own something or not? In most cases, a yellow dot will appear next to an item that we don't own, but that is owned by one of our partner libraries. Follow these steps to request an item:
If Summit does not own the item, or you can't find it in our catalog, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. You can fill out a registration form to get started; once signed in, you can place new requests by format using the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
See this page for examples of what to look for.
Need help citing resources for a paper?
Try using Purdue University's Online Writing Program, which features a description of various citation styles and examples: see their APA Guide or MLA Guide for help. Examples for reference lists/bibliographies and in-text citations are listed in the left-hand sidebar of each page.
