WorldCat Discovery and Summon

An introduction to our new catalog and discovery application, WorldCat Discovery-- and information on accessing Summon


WorldCat Discovery is Rudisill Library's new catalog and discovery application, replacing both our old catalog and Summon. We think you'll find it a much superior catalog and comparable with Summon in terms of searching electronic library resources. 

This page is brand new and will eventually include search tips, instructional videos, and basic information on how to use WorldCat Discovery well. You can still access Summon at the link below, but the catalog content in Summon-- on library books and other physical materials-- is extremely out-of-date. Please only use WorldCat Discovery for printed books and serials.

We think you'll like our new catalog. And, although we'll still be charging replacement costs for lost materials, we're eliminating late fees for overdue books. 

We hope you'll enjoy WorldCat Discovery. It was a lot of work, but we think you'll agree that it was well worth it.

Please click this link to access Summon to locate online library journals and ebooks. You can also access Summon via the "Resources" tab at the top of the page. Please note: Summon is no longer accurate for books and other printed library materials. Use WorldCat Discovery instead.
