Searching Summon

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Omni lets you do 'one search' to find books, journal articles, newspaper articles, videos, etc. It searches almost all of our collections and databases, simultaneously.

If you know the title of a specific book, journal article, or journal, just type in the full title in the search box.

If you are keyword searching:

  • Combine keywords with AND
  • Combine Synonyms with OR
  • Use truncation * (asterisk) at the end of a root word to find all forms of the word, ie: mineral* (will retrieve minerals, mineralogy, mineralogical, etc.)

When you get your results, use the filters on the left side of the screen to limit your search. 

Note: If you are searching Summon from off campus, you must login if you want to be able to access online journal articles and ebooks.
