Summon has changed display and linking of citation-only records


   

Summon citation details screen


June 14, 2012 – Summon has implemented a new way to display and link to content that exists only as a citation in its database (as opposed to those available in full text). Currently this includes many records provided by Web of Science and ERIC (and soon MLA International Bibliography) which previously would have linked to these sources, even though the full text of these articles is not available in these databases. Now Summon will show an intermediate screen [above] that displays the full citation and record details, including the source for this citation (as a link so you could go to that database for further searching).

Included on this page will be a Request button that will display the familiar Get VText screen. Since Summon uses the same system as Get VText to determine full-text availability, you will never see a link to the full text in Step 1, but you may be offered additional tools to search for the full text in Step 2. If those tools fail to produce the full text, request the article via Interlibrary Loan in Step 3 (that link will lead to a fully-filled out form in the ILLiad system).
