Q. What is Summon? How do I use it? Is there a tutorial?


Summon gives you the power to search nearly all of the Library’s print and online resources at once, including items such as:

  • Print and electronic books
  • Scholarly journals
  • Magazines and newspapers
  • Dissertations and theses
  • Streaming videos
  • Open access collections

Summon’s filters and limiters allow you to search millions of items on your topic and zero in on the most relevant books, articles, and videos in the Library’s collections.

Summon is a great place to begin any research project because it searches easy-to-overlook databases and e-book collections.
