JCU is being Summon'd

It's official, we've signed up for Summon and I'm really looking forward to the end product, if not the work that has to be done to get there.

I quite proud that a smallish regional university library like ours has seen the potential of the product even in it's early days, and this is one of those rare times where the benefits have made early adoption the right choice.

I found this small blogpost today from Jonathan Miller the director of Olin Library and it filled my heart with good cheer heading into the festive season, and I quote:

"Half way through the meeting a professor says, "By the way, that R-Search is great. My students love it. I love it!"

This doesn't often happen with other library services ...."

Take a look at how we will be integrating Summon into our new website, which we plan to launch with the new semester in January.

John, your new look is brilliantly simple. We're looking at embarking on a redesign as well, and see Summon as integral to that.
