Summon is a search engine that performs a single search across the library catalogue, library's subscription databases as well as citations of research work to which the library does not have subscription. The Summon tool attempts to replicate the experience of using Google, but limiting results to the library's academic content. The Summon search results may include journal articles, book/ebooks, videos, newspaper articles, dissertation/thesis, conference proceedings, grey literature, and more.

While Summon contains information from most of the Libraries' databases, there is some information that is not included in Summon. Specialised or comprehensive research should be done in the Libraries' subject-specific databases. A list of all databases can be found on the library’s eResources page. For information about which databases are best for your subject area consult the library’s Subject Guides.
