The Library's Catalog -- Summon
The library's catalog search is called Summon. In any library, the library catalog is where you search for materials that are owned by the library.
Summon is a particular type of database called a "discovery layer". It allows you to search for books, DVDs, CDs, reference books, electronic books, etc., plus some journal articles* and other on-line content, all at the same time.
Start your search at the link, above, or on the Library's home page.
Once you perform an initial search, you will be presented with options to refine your search and to perform an advanced search. Take a look at the Advanced Search interface.
*Note that Summon does not provide you with the ability to find all of the journal articles the library has access to -- it is best to use the article databases that we provide to do a thorough search for articles.
