New – the Library’s Very Own Search Engine November 1, 2011

Posted by Paul Williams in All categories, All Subjects.

Did you know that the library provides access to over 100 databases stuffed to the brim with full text journal articles, e-books, sound recordings, government documents, and more?

Did you know that we select these databases individually to provide you with access to literally millions of articles across the full range of subjects studied at the University?

One thing I bet you did know is that searching databases individually can be time-consuming and, at times, confusing. We know, because you’ve told us in the feedback we collect.

Today sees the launch of our latest solution – Summon. Summon takes approximately 97% of these resources and searches right across them all in one go. Think Google, but with resources that the library selects and subscribes to, so you can be sure of the quality of the information.

We’ll be publishing more posts here over the coming days, giving you tips on getting the most from Summon, but for the time being, why not just give it a try. I know you’re going to like it, and there’s a feedback link at the top of the page if you want to share your thoughts, or by all means drop a comment here.
