Summon - Articles, Books, and More

Summon is a quick way to search many different library research resources to find materials in the library's collection, including ebooks and online journal articles. To read the online materials, simply click on the title of the work.

Keyword Search

Search Tips:

  • Be specific about your topic; using at least 2-3 keywords is usually helpful.
  • Put phrases in quotation marks ("Old English") to make sure to search the words together.
  • After doing a search, click on "Peer-Review" to narrow the results to articles in scholarly peer-reviewed journals.

Finding More Books - MERLIN and MOBIUS

To search for ebooks or print books, use the MERLIN library catalog. The easiest way to find specific books is to search by title or author (last name first). To search for books on a topic, do a keyword search. You can use the dropdown menu on the Advanced Search page if you want to limit your search to items written in French.

Find even more books using the MOBIUS catalog, which searches more than 60 libraries in the state of Missouri. You can go directly to the MOBIUS catalog to search, or if you are searching in MERLIN, you can simply switch to MOBIUS by clicking the "Search MOBIUS" button.

Use the "Request" link to get materials from other libraries. Books generally take between 2 and 5 business days to arrive when coming from another Missouri library. You will receive an email when they are available to check out at the library.


Finding More Articles - Research Databases

Use these databases to find articles not available through Summon. When the full article is not provided, click on the "Get It" button to see if the online article is included elsewhere in our collection. Articles that are not available online can be requested through interlibrary loan; copies will be delivered to you by email.
