The Mansfield Library is constantly looking for ways to improve the effectiveness of research in the least amount of time. With this goal in mind, the Mansfield Libraries will be installing a new search tool that will provide a simple and comprehensive search across our 40,000 e-journals, the library catalog, and digital collections. The product is called Summon.
You can expect the same single search box that you are now using to search for articles in our electronic journals but with a lot more power. Summon is designed to bring together not only articles but also books and information from our digital collections in the same search.
Look for it March 8. Direct access to databases for those who are accustomed to that form of searching will continue to be available.
