What is Summon?

Summon is a "discovery layer" that allows you to search the content owned and accessible to the College of Wooster Libraries, using a Google-like interface. This includes specific journal, book, media and Digital Resource Commons (DRC) content.

 

Use Summon When...

  • you are first starting your research, to get ideas or background info
  • you have had difficulty finding sources in other databases
  • you need an alternative to Google - easy searching but with more credible results 
 

Do Not Use Summon When...

  • you want specific books or media in a library catalog, instead try CONSORT or OhioLINK
  • you want business research, specifically country, company and industry reports
  • you want legal research, specifically legal journal titles, case reports and legislation
  • you want the advanced features of searching a specific database
