Summon is a library search engine which searches the Jennings Library catalog (CALCAT) and almost of our databases at the same time.  You can use it to find books, e-books, scholarly articles, newspaper articles, videos, music, and more. 

Once you enter the topic you're looking for, you can easily narrow your search results by Content Type (Book/E-book, Journal Article, Video Recording, etc.) and publication date.  You can also limit your search to Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed resources.

However, Summon does not search all of our databases.  If you are looking for statistics, online videos, or articles from online reference books, you should search within the individual databases recommended in our Databases by Type guide.
