This search form returns library web page content on the main library website, plus the websites for Special Collections, Digital Library and Archives, the library staff directory, library subject guides, and some content from other university departments, such as the Graduate Schools electronic theses and dissertations guidelines.
Summon is a one-stop search for many kinds of library resources: books, journal articles, conference papers, reports, videos, newspaper articles, theses and dissertations, government documents, and much more. It does not contain all of the resources to which the library subscribes (a comprehensive search on a topic requires searching more than one database). It can show you citations for items to which we do not subscribe, though you can usually request these items through interlibrary loan.
Course Reserves are materials set aside by an instructor with limited checkout periods to ensure access by an entire class. These materials could be a book or video from the library's collections, personal copies of a book or video from the instructor, photocopies of articles or book chapters, or electronic files. You can search by your instructor's name or your course number, and you will see a list of materials on reserve for that course, the checkout period, and the availability of each item.
