Borrowing

The Circulation Desk, located by the library entrance on the main level, is the place to borrow library materials, pick up Summit and interlibrary loan materials and reserves.

Borrowing privileges are determined by your patron category. If you’re not certain, a library assistant can help you determine your category.

Library Cards

A library card is required to borrow materials from Shoen Library and Summit libraries.

Your Marylhurst University ID is your library card and your account number is your Marylhurst ID number. You can get an ID card at the reception desk in the BP John Administration Building.

Visitors may present a current library card from a public library in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington county.

Book Drops

Shoen Library has two book drops. One is located next to the library’s main entrance. The second is located on Furman Drive, and there is a designated parking spot for using this book drop.

Book drops can be rough on materials – for that reason, we ask that you not deposit media or equipment in the book drops. Please return these items to the circulation desk during regular library hours.

Distance Services

Do you live more than 30 miles from Marylhurst and from the nearest Summit member institution?

Do you visit our campus less than once a week?

Are you currently enrolled or teaching at Marylhurst?

If you answered yes to all of the above, we will provide distance services to you.

Shipping Materials

Materials from Shoen Library are shipped through the US Mail at library rate; they may take several days to arrive. Media are shipped via First Class mail. You will need to return materials by the due dates, and you are responsible for the return shipping costs. Please contact our Access Services Department to place a shipment request.

Electronic Copies

We can make electronic copies of articles from the print collection and forward them via email. We will also forward electronic copies of articles obtained through interlibrary loan. Please contact a reference librarian at reference@marylhurst.edu for more information.

What cannot be shipped?

Unfortunately, Summit and interlibrary loan materials cannot be shipped. We encourage you to work with your local libraries to find materials that aren’t available through Shoen Library.

Reserves may be shipped only by instructor’s consent. We encourage you to talk with your instructor to find alternative resources.
