The University of Miami Libraries have joined over 100 libraries around the world in pioneering Summon, a simple, instant search of library collections developed by Serials Solutions. The Summon search engine will allow students and faculty to search the library in the same simple way they do the Web, simultaneously searching the library’s books, articles, newspapers, videos and digitized collections—all from a single search box.
Transition from Encore & MultiSearch to Summon
The new Summon search engine replaces the MultiSearch tool, providing greatly expanded access to more sources and articles. Additionally, we will be phasing out the Encore catalog search, as the Summon search will include similar functionality and display of results with the added benefit of also including articles and the University’ s digitized collections. Access to the traditional library catalog and subject specific databases will still be available for more in-depth research; however Summon will be a great place to start your work.
