Streamlined Summit Requesting through Search It
Content from the thirty-seven libraries within the Orbis Cascade Alliance (Summit) is now fully integrated through the single search interface of Search It, and as a result of this integration, the Alliance rolled out the enhancements to the Summit requesting process on January 20, 2015. Some of the benefits of these enhancements are that patrons will experience fewer authentication requests and increased availability awareness of Summit items at the point of request.
Search It is WSU’s search interface that retrieves results from databases and catalogs found in academic libraries across the Pacific Northwest. In Search It, all content available to WSU students, staff, and faculty is immediately accessible, and all other content from the neighboring thirty-six institutions can be requested and quickly delivered. The full integration of the Summit catalog into the Search It interface will create new opportunities for enhancements and improvements that will benefit those who use these library services.
For those of you that have used the Summit search interface (http://summit.worldcat.org) for discovery should note that this URL will no longer be available after 1/19/2015. If you want to search WorldCat, you can find WorldCat via FirstSearch and WorldCat for non-WSU affiliates on our Find Databases A-Z page or, if you prefer, WorldCat results are also integrated into the Search It search scope that is labeled Everything + (beta).
