Welcome to our guide to Summon! This tool allows you to locate library resources -- journal and newspaper articles, books, e-books, DVDs and more -- in one simple search.
You'll immediately notice many more results than you may be accustomed to. This is OK! You can refine your results by type of material, publication date, and more right on your results page. We'll show you how in this guide, in the Working with Results section.
When viewing your results, you'll also see that the list is ranked by relevance, so that the most pertinent results show up at the top of the list. If there is a specific database that focuses on the subject you're looking for, it will be recommended to you at the top of your results list as well.
We hope that you find Summon helpful in your assignments and research. Don't forget -- if you have any questions, just ask us!
