Tips when you’re searching Summon from home

When you use Summon from home, or elsewhere outside the campus, it is good if you log in first. Logging in enables you to have access to all the resources we have enabled in Summon. If you do not log in you miss the results from the Web of Science.

How to do it:

1. You find the search box for Summon on the Library web site. Do your search in the search box.

2. When the results list show up, you’ll see a dark gray strip in the Summon header. It says “Off campus? Login to access full text and more content.” Click on the text and log in with your regular user data.

3. Once you have done this you will be redirected to the search page for Summon. Redo your search and you will probably see that you have more results than you had before you logged in.

A further advantage of logging in immediately is that you do not need to log in at a later stage to access full text articles and e-books.

You find the search box for Summon at the Library website.

Good luck with your searches!
