Yale University Library Selects Summon Discovery Service
Yale University selected the Summon discovery service from Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business, to improve access to its distinctive collection, including 15 million volumes and information in all media.
The library conducted a thorough review of discovery services to identify a solution that would deliver improved discovery, has comprehensive coverage of its vast collection, increase usage of the library’s resources, and provide flexible and robust customization capabilities.
“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, customized 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.”
