Cite Checker's Guide: About ILL

Helpful tips for law review cite checking assignments.


Books and media that are not available at Lewis & Clark College libraries, including checked-out and missing items, may be borrowed via Summit. This consortium of 39 academic libraries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, provides materials to current students, staff and faculty.

You can request items from Summit in Primo, the library's online catalog. Requested items typically arrive within three business days.

Current students, staff, and faculty may also borrow and return items in person at any Summit location. Be sure to bring your Lewis & Clark ID card.  

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Articles and books not available through Summit may be available via InterLibrary Loan. L&C Law students and faculty may use this form to make ILL requests. ILL requests are only available to current members of the Lewis and Clark Law School community and Attorney Services clients.
