Summon to replace Libraries catalog: HOW DO I...

SEARCH FOR A BOOK?

Enter search terms relevant to the book you're looking for into the Summon search box - such as author name, the title, or words from the title, and press enter.

When the search results appear, click on the Book / eBook link under CONTENT TYPE in the left-hand REFINE YOUR SEARCH  column.

You can continue to refine your search by Publication Date and Library Location using the other filters in REFINE YOUR SEARCH.

SEARCH FOR PRINT MATERIALS?

Enter search terms relevant to the item you are looking for into the Summon search box - subject keywords, the title, or words from the title, or name of the author (if you are looking for a book).  Press enter.

When the search results appear, turn your attention to the REFINE YOUR SEARCH column on the left-hand side of the screen.  Scroll down so you can see the options under LIBRARY LOCATION.  If the physical location you are interested in appears on the list, click on it.

If the location of interest is not showing, click on More... which will open up a middle column on your screen.  Choose the location or locations of interest by clicking on the appropriate green check marks.  When you've finished, click on the APPLY button that appears at the top of the location column.

You can also choose location by excluding locations not of interest to you by clicking on the red X circles, and then clicking the APPLY button that appears at the top of the location column.
