All-in-one: Summon Search

Summon. It searches the library catalog (GRACE) , all of our databases, open access resources, and LibGuides in one place. 

This search is the big search box on the library home page. If you have any questions about using Summon, chat a librarian or email us at


Searching Summon

Once you enter your search in, the real strength of Summon is in the refinements on the left sidebar. You can select Full Text online to limit only to ebooks and online articles, or select dates, subjects, or specific languages. 

Important Note: for items on our shelves click "check availability" to see the location and if the item is checked out.
