The Summon search box is the default search box located on the RIT Libraries' homepage. Summon allows you to search almost all of the library's content from a single search box! In some ways, it is similar to a Google search of the library collection. Just as with a Google search, a Summon search will typically deliver many, many results. The key to success is to utilize the filters located in the margin to the left of your Summon search results.
