New in Summon Library Search

Dec 12, 2022

Sierra via Summon

It is now possible to log in to your library account (My Account) via Summon.

Suggested reading: What is Summon Search?


Once logged in, you can:

  • View what you currently have checked out from the library
  • Renew checked out items
  • Request In Process items (e.g. items on their way to the shelf)
  • Authorized users may also request items checked out to someone else (e.g. recall items)

To use Sierra (the library catalog) via Summon, click the Library Card icon in the upper right corner (center on mobile devices). It has a tool tip of Library Card also.

Log In / Log Out Options

  • Library Login (name, barcode, PIN)
  • Campus Login (as for library databases, etc.)

There are also two options for logging out: Everywhere and Library Catalog only.

Suggested viewing: Library Catalog Login (90-second screencast with transcript)*

Also New in Summon

Other recent additions to Summon include:

  • Search Options overlay (replaces the separate Advanced Search page)
  • Quick Look panel (includes at-a-glance journal coverage information) for search results
