Creating Advanced Searches in Summon

Do you like searching Summon, but wish that you could create more detailed searches? Well, you can! Summon has an Advanced Search link that you can click on that works much in the same way that Google Scholar’s does.

1. Move your cursor over the Library menu option in iGuide and choose Summon.

2. Choose the Advanced Search link under the search box.

The Advanced Search lets you search by title, author or ISBN. However, you can also check out the Search Tips page of our Summon database guide for information about how you can use Boolean Operators (AND, OR), quotation marks and other techniques to create some types of advanced searches quickly on your own without having to click through to the Advanced Search feature.
