Libraries Launch Search Interface to Streamline Discovery Process

Searching the Drexel University Libraries’ collection just became easier with the Summon search feature, located on the library website’s homepage. Summon, a web based service provides a “Google-like” experience, which streamlines the discovery process and allows researchers to search across many different subscription resources, books and journals. Detailed results are ranked by relevancy, with the most relevant results appearing at the top of the list.

Summon is widely used in major academic libraries around the world and its agreements with scholarly content publishers allows for article-level indexing of the full-text of articles, pulling together the content from individual interfaces such as those provided EBSCO and JSTOR.

The Libraries acquired Summon last summer with a larger release occurring in fall 2011.   For more information about the Summon service, its coverage and its relevancy to Drexel University Libraries, please visit:
