Summon is a search tool that allows you to search our online, print and media resources all at once.
Summon searches through collections of books and e-books, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, theses and dissertations, conference proceedings, and numerous academic databases.
It contains everything found in the traditional QCAT Library Catalogue, plus millions of full-text articles and other digital content available from the Library.
New search tool coming on Dec. 10
What Does This Mean for You?
Our Summon and QCAT tools for discovering information resources will be replaced with a new single search tool for searching across Queen’s and other Ontario university partner library collections in a new shared library services platform, providing enhanced discovery and delivery.
