Library Catalogue and Summon: Subject searching with Summon

Search Summon

Summon enables you to search the library catalogue and other resources (e.g journals or newspapers) all at the same time.

If you are off campus please log into myUniHub and go to My Study and the My Library box to find Summon.  This will ensure all our passwords work automatically.  On campus, search Summon for articles, books, & more here:
