Serials Solutions is working with HBO Kennisbank to index the results of publicly funded research contained in the institutional repositories of Dutch universities in the Summon service. Metadata from the HBO Knowledge Base will be indexed allowing researchers to discover articles, research reports and theses produced by lecturers, teachers and students within the universities alongside their library's other resources to gather the most relevant information for their projects.

A store of knowledge, the HBO Knowledge Base offers public access to the results of research done by Dutch Universities of Applied Science. The HBO Knowledge Base is part of the HBO Knowledge Infrastructure (HKI) and stimulates the exchange of knowledge between research, education, business and society. The participating universities of applied science work together in the HKI to maximise the visibiliuty and use of research output.

With one of the participating universities' (Fontys University of Applied Sciences) institutional repository already indexed in the Summon service, Serials Solutions is responding to clients in the region, requesting content from the other institutions to be indexed. Making material of the colleges visible and available for sharing and reuse, the HBO Knowledge is an important gateway to the results of research of colleges.
