Delivery of Books and Articles from Linfield Libraries

If you have found books or journal articles at Linfield's Jereld R. Nicholson Library or books at our Portland campus, you may request that we send them to you. All document delivery from McMinnville campus is free. The only charge you pay is to ship books back to us. You may return Linfield (or Summit) books to our McMinnville or Portland libraries. Each site has a drop box.

  • Books at Linfield may be ordered online using the request button on the book record page. Select items to be picked up at the McMinnville Circ Desk, Portland Circ Desk, or DCE via mail.
  • Articles: Use the "Search for Full Text" links in the databases to take you through the three steps of finding an article. If you are not in a database, but have an article citation, use Periodicals@Linfield to determine if we own the journal or if you can get it full text online. The journal record will tell you if we own the journal issue that contains your article and whether the journal is at the McMinnville or Portland campus.
    • Articles in journals at the McMinnville campus may be ordered by contacting Carol McCulley with the citation information.
    • Articles from journals at the Portland campus may be ordered through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

For ordering items through Summit, check Get Item.
