Those services are available to you from Chemeketa. Chemeketa's library will offer you access to research databases from your home or workplace via the Web, interlibrary loan services, and expert advice about using your library at Chemeketa.

Since Chemeketa is one of our SUMMIT partners, you can order books via the SUMMIT catalog and if you wish, you can pick them up here. For more information about setting that up please see the section of this page under "Library Cards".
Getting Books found via your searches if they are not at Linfield or in Summit. Contact your Chemeketa Community College's librarians about Interlibrary Loan service for you for items not in Summit.
Finding Articles from Magazines or Journals
For more databases by discipline area, select the link All Research Databases from the "Research Databases" menu choice on the upper left side of the library's home page to go to a list of resources by subject.
Many of the articles indexed via these databases will be full text. In that case, you can click on the words "HTML" or "PDF" to open the entire article, which you can print or email to yourself. But some of the indexed articles may be only available here in print or microfilm, and some may not be available here at all.This is one situation when a Reference Librarian comes in handy. Until you have used the library often you may miss something we have. Be sure to ASK before leaving empty-handed!
Articles not here: Once you and our reference staff have determined an article isn't available here, contact your Chemeketa Community College's librarians about Interlibrary Loan service for you for articlest.
