I can't find [an article, book, resource] in Summon. Where can I find it?
Can’t find a book in Summon? Try:
- Limiting your results to “Content Type: Book” (example)
- Doing an advanced search in Summon (“With these words in the title”, “Written/created by”)
- Doing a “Title” search in the QCAT Library Catalogue
Can’t find an article in Summon? Try:
- Using an “exact phrase” search on the article title to narrow your results (example)
- Some articles are not findable in Summon (it does not provide 100% coverage of our journal collection).
- To do a thorough article search: look up the journal title and determine if the Library subscribes to the journal. Then browse by year/issue to find the right article.
Can't find a journal in Summon? Try:
- Using the journal title search to find a specific journal, newspaper or periodical.
- How to Find - recommended search tools for all content formats (music, statistics and data, patents, etc.)
Does it look like the Library doesn’t own the item?
