Q. What is Summon?
Summon is an intuitive and fast search engine that helps you discover relevant information on any topic from the University of Victoria Libraries collections. It searches through our collection of books, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, e-books, dissertations, videos, maps, manuscript collections, music scores and more.
Rather than search for all of these things in separate databases, Summon provides a single unified search box. From your search results, it is one step to the full text of articles or you can see if a book is available.
