This guide gives you basic information about how Summon works to find things owned by University of Rochester Libraries

Getting Started

The Catalog tab searches for those books, scores, recordings, videos, and e-resources that are cataloged. Tip:  When off-campus, log in with your NetID & password to ensure access to everything.

Enter your keywords in the search box on the Sibley Library home page and you will see all library resources that match your initial search. Check the drop down menu to limit your search to items in Sibley.
