Find Everything in the Libraries’ Collections with One Search
The Libraries have introduced a new search tool that will enable users to do just one search to find the resources they need.
Functioning as a library catalog, a journal locator, a database locator, and a large full-text article database, the new search tool enables users to enter terms into a web-like search box to obtain licensed content from the Libraries’ entire collection. Previously, users were required to search in multiple locations or fields, depending on the type of information they sought. The technology behind the new search tool is called “Summon(tm),” and is provided by Serials Solutions(r), a business unit of ProQuest(r).
To use the new all-encompassing search tool, labeled “Everything @ UConn,” just insert a topic of interest. Users may then refine their search and specify parameters such as content type, subject, or date. For a more sophisticated search by, for example, author or journal title, users should use the “Advanced Search” option.
