Search Summon

Summon searches many different library research sources to find a variety of materials, including ebooks and online journal articles, with a single search. 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 ("Briar Rose") 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 Articles - Research Databases

Use these databases to find articles from journals not included in Summon, as well as other types of publications. If the full text of an article is not provided within the database, click on the "Get It" button to see if the article is available electronically elsewhere in our collection. Articles that are not available online can be requested through interlibrary loan; copies will be delivered to you by email.

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.

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.

The Missouri S&T library will mail books to distance students, or send them to other MOBIUS libraries for in-person pick up. For more information about this service, visit our Distance Education page. If you have questions, please email the subject librarian.

Search Tip

When you find a journal article or book that you think is a good source for your research, look at the works cited to see if you can identify other potentially useful sources. Then search the library's collection to see if they are available here.
