Summon Make-Over - Updated Search Interface

During the semester break Summon had a makeover!

New features
What's new in Summon 2.0

It has the same wonderful array of academic, scholarly information resources as before but packaged up in a more up-to-date interface which is responsive to mobile devices. It now also surfaces related content for you including encyclopedia and other reference articles to help you understand the topic background.

I really like that the resource details now display in the new explorer pane on the right-hand side of the screen without obscuring the search results. It also helps you uncover alternative search terms you might not have thought to include.
