Known-Item Searching

If I'm searching in Summon, how do I find an item I think (or know) we have in our physical collection?


1. Select the "Advanced search options" link in the Summon search box on the main library page. Perform a title search. Check the box next to "Items in the library catalog (includes mostly print and physical material)" under "Show only."

2. Execute a search in the basic Summon search box on the main library page. Use the "Refine Your Search" facet on the left hand side to limit your results to "Library Catalog."


What do I do if I expect to link to full text and the link fails?

We want to know about it! Fill out this form as completely as possible and a member of the Summon Committee will investigate the problem.
