Yale University picks Summon for discovery

Yale University has chosen the Summon discovery service from Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business. With this purchase, the US university aims to improve access to its collection, which includes 15 million volumes and information in all media. Yale University Library is said to have chosen to work with Serials Solutions because of ease of customisation, integrity of search results, a unified index architecture and the company’s track record for rapid innovation of new discovery features.

'As one of the world’s leading research libraries, providing easy access to our vast collection of resources is very important,' said Michael Dula, chief technology officer, Yale University Library. 'The Summon API will enable us to create a more tailored user experience, customised interface, and connect our users to relevant content. While we carefully evaluated a number of services, Summon was the most obvious choice based on the ease-of-use and flexibility of the API, and the new features in Summon 2.0.'
