New Library Search Tool Launched~ Summon (Beta)

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.   The technology behind the new search tool is called “Summon™,” and is provided by Serials Solutions®, a business unit of ProQuest®.

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.
