Q. What is Summon?


Summon is a search engine that provides a single starting point to find and access the majority of the University Libraries' resources — including books, ebooks, scholarly journals and articles, newspaper articles, dissertations and theses, videos, maps, manuscripts, music scores, digitized items, and more. A hosted service from Serials Solutions, the Summon knowledge base is combined with content from the University Libraries into one unified index.

Basically, it's the library's catalog

+ library digital collections

+ articles in the many indexes and databases that the library subscribes to (about 80% of the content)


Bonus Tip:

If you're looking for articles about music and your search results in Summon are too broad or contain too many entires not related to what you are looking, try searching in music-specific databases like RILM or the Music Index.
