Finding information just got easier

The Library’s new searching service is here - Summon. You can try it right now on the Library homepage, just put your search words into the box that looks like this

and click Search. Hopefully you’ve tried it by now :)

Hopefully also, you’ve found:
> that it’s fast
> that you get good results straight away
> that you get links to the full-text where it’s available
> that you’re discovering resources that you haven’t used before

We think that Summon is going to make finding the information you need a lot easier.

This is however a completely new service, and there may be improvements we can make – we want your feedback! If you have any difficulties using Summon, if you think there’s something that could be better, or if you just think it’s great, let us know by clicking ‘Feedback’ on the top right of the Summon results page.

We’re also having quick information sessions all this week. If you have any questions about Summon, or just want to see what it can do, drop in to the Octagon in the Main library at 3pm, every day until Friday.
