What is Summon?

Summon is a fast search engine that helps you discover a range of relevant information in the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Library collection. It searches books, conference proceedings, government documents, ebooks, journal and newspaper articles, maps, music scores and more, all from a single search box. Right from the list of results, it’s easy to see if the book is available, or if the article is full-text online.

Summon can be a useful starting place for your library research.

A word of caution - sometimes your search will return an overwhelming number of results so it is a good idea to make use of the limiting options available, such as limiting to books/ebooks or peer-reviewed journals or by date. After searching in Summon you may wish to switch directly into the library catalogue to search for books or into the individual databases...especially the ones that are not included in a Summon search.
