Using the Barber Library & Summit Catalog means you're searching all the materials physically located in the Barber Library in Bend, as well as ebooks and streaming videos you can access from anywhere, AND materials owned by other Pacific Northwest libraries that can be shared and delivered to you with a just a click of a button!

Searching in the catalog is helpful to your research when:

  • You're looking to get an in-depth perspective of a topic with a lot of context.
  • You'd like to see a collection of sub-topics or various themes within a big, broad topic.
  • You want to see if the library owns a copy of something—maybe even something you want to read for fun!
