One Single Search for 97% of the Library’s Resources! October 18, 2011

Posted by barj1 in All categories.

From 1st November, University of Worcester Library users will be able to search across approximately 97% of our resources at once, using ‘Summon’.
Using the latest harvesting and search technology, Summon provides a single search for 97% of the library’s resources, delivering a Google-style experience which ranks the results in order of relevancy and availability. ILS provides the knowledge behind the system, making sure that resources are all selected as authoritative, useful materials, worthy of a citation in academic work, while Summon brings them to the screen.
If you’ve ever been frustrated by the need to look in a dozen databases to find the right journal articles or books for your assignment, Summon is most definitely the tool for you.
Summon is an extremely powerful tool which will bring all of our resources direct to your desktop, from books and journal articles, to podcasts, conference proceedings, newspaper articles and much more, all selected by staff here in ILS, so you can be sure of the quality. Marry this up with the help and advice on offer from our dedicated customer services staff and specialist Academic Liaison Librarians, and finding resources for your work doesn’t need to be a struggle.
