Wherever your researchers are, whatever device your researchers are using, the Summon™ service is there! As mobile devices and iPads become more popular among your students, they want to be able to search and access your library’s resources from anywhere they might be.  Committed to helping you meet your user’s expectations, the Summon mobile and iPad experiences have been improved to make discovery of your library’s resources simple, easy and fast —  no matter what technology users select.

Going Mobile

Enhanced to include real-time availability, display of the Journal Title field and support for JavaScript widgets (if the mobile device supports them), the Summon mobile version offers all of the discovery capabilities of the standard interface. Researchers will be able to conduct searches including advanced, use all the refinement options including facets and “did you mean" suggestions, email and export results all from their mobile device.

iPad Friendly!

Researchers accessing the Summon™  service on their iPad will now find that instead of using the mobile version, the full version of Summon is displayed. The full version has been enhanced to work well within the iPad display and provide an optimal user experience on this popular new device.

“As a student trying to do school completely on an iPad, these two updates make me love Summon even more.”  Student, Liberty University

Support for IE9

Windows Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), the most current version of the Internet Explorer web browser from Microsoft was released mid-March and the Summon™ service will work for all those users adopting the new version.
