I recently asked our newest member of the elibrary team, currently filling in as Serials Librarian (Maternity Cover), to have a play with Summon. Being a conscientious information profession she did a little research and hightlighted the following sources as most helpful in giving her a better understanding of resource discovery.
- University of North Texas library page explaining Summon
- Blog post, Library search tools. Could we make them hard to use
- Dave Pattern’s blog post in response to the post above
I remember finding the following 2 diagrams from proquest (in the summon user guide on the client centre) particularly helpful in understanding how summon works
So what resources helped you to understand how Summon/resource discovery works?
