If you have found a book that it looks like we only have the physical copy or it is only in Summit, here are some steps you can take to access those materials digitally.
If you are in Walla Walla, you can pick up Penrose items from the library front entrance. Here's how it works:

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.
Summit materials are being borrowed, but not all schools in our consortium are participating, so you might not see every book you are looking for. You can find them in Sherlock, selecting Summit from the drop down menu. Be prepared for a longer wait between potential shipping delays and quarantine time. ILL physical materials are not available at this time. We can request scans from books at our institutions, generally a chapter or small portion. From the library home page you will see a link to Interlibrary Loan in Quick Check. Under New Requests select Book Chapter and fill in all relevant information. We are still able to get scans of journal articles through ILL.
We are extending due dates for library materials. If you have materials currently checked-out, you should receive a notice with the new dates or they can be found in your library account (accessible via the library’s home page). Please return items to the outside book drop when you are finished with them.
Graduating students have two ways to return checked out library materials. If you are local, return them using the book drop at the Penrose Library entrance. If you are in a different location, please mail them to this address:
Whitman College Penrose Library
345 Boyer Ave.
Walla Walla, WA 99362
The Library will reimburse students for their shipping costs. After we receive a package that is mailed using MEDIA MAIL rate, we will credit your student account. If you need help paying for shipping up-front, please contact Jen Pope (firstname.lastname@example.org) for options.
