Summon searches all library materials appropriate to college-level research simultaneously and ranks the results by relevance to your search terms. We call this type of research a "discovery search." Rather than repeating your search in several library databases for articles and the library catalog for books, you can do one search in Summon and receive results for all the articles, books, newspapers, reference sources, and more that we have on your topic. Whenever available, full text links appear on the search results page. Have questions about how to use Summon? A librarian will be happy to answer.

Many other relevant works appear elsewhere in the shelf number classification scheme (e.g., RM146 Medication Errors or RC111 Infectious Diseases). If you need a specific title or subject and are not just browsing, the best place to start is Summon, the online classic catalog.
When you view a record, the location will be given for either the PIC or the Farley Library or both. For example:
