Librarians will be available from 9-5 Monday - Friday for help with any reference questions you may have. Please be patient as we may have a higher volume of patrons using our services remotely. If the chat does not appear or work, please don't hesitate to email, or use our contact form.
Per the fall 2020 Academic Resources page:
Since academic buildings are closed affecting access to printers, the Whitman College Print Shop will be fulfilling your printing needs.
If you need something printed Monday through Friday, fill out this form before noon and choose a pickup time between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. that same day. If your print request is received after noon, your order will be available on the following business day. Printing will not be available on the weekends.
Pickup will happen at Boyer House (34 Boyer Ave., next to the GAC, and across from the Walla Walla Sub Shop). Please enter through the front doors, pick up your printing and exit immediately. We also ask that you follow social distancing protocols, including the proper wearing of face coverings as required on campus.
Many academic publishers have made any coronavirus articles freely available. Here are some resources to learn more about COVID-19 coronavirus from government and academic sources.
We will make every effort to ensure that students and faculty have access to the information resources they need to complete coursework, finish research, and continue their academic lives. Our digital collections will be available for use, and reference librarians will be available online to answer questions and provide research guidance. We will be able to receive digital ILL materials. Please check our home page for updated information.
Library Hours: The library is closed until further announcement.
Archives: The archives is closed until further announcement.

Not in Walla Walla? Remote Mail Delivery Step-by-Step
The image below shows where to click for the different delivery request options:
Summit services have resumed as of August 17th. Not all schools in the region are participating, so it might not be as big a variety of resources as you may expect. We will be quaranting books as they arrive so expect a longer delay in receiving notice they are available. We will also be quarantining them once they've been returned so they may stay in your account longer than expected but you will not accrue fines.
With the library closed, there are many ways the Library can provide you with expert help and services.
Need to fix your thesis citations? Need to access a print resource in Penrose remotely? Ask us! We can be contacted via email or chat. Chat is monitored by reference librarians from 9-5, Monday through Friday. You can start a chat conversation from the link on the library’s home page or the box on the left on this page.
Remotely, you can still access all of our digital resources, including e-books. For physical materials on our shelves, including reserves, it is likely we can get you a digital version or make scans of a selection of pages from the resource. Feel free to chat or email us and we will work with you to find other means of access.
