New search option!

Monday, August 8th, 2011

We’ve already told you about the changes to some of our databases that were included in the Scholars Portal Search.  Now, we’re introducing a new search option – Summon!


Summon searches articles,  journals, books, theses, conferences, data sets and more.  It is available using the “Article Search” tab from Engineering & Computer Science Library’s home page.


The default search is limited to peer-reviewed articles, so make sure you uncheck the box if you want to search other content types.  you can change your search options after your initial search, as well.


Questions about Summon?  Email, call us at 416-946-0389, or stop by the library!

Changes to Electronic Resources

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Scholars Portal Search will be changing!

By the end of the week, most of the databases available through Scholars Portal Search (such as Metadex) will be available on a new interface.  The links to Scholars Portal Search will be taken down, but new ones with direct links to the individual databases on the new interface will be available. Some databases, such as Web of Science and Compendex, will not be available on the new interface, but will still be available through their own separate interfaces.


More changes to electronic resources will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
