UPDATE on Summon Onsite Training for CLIC Libraries

CLIC is hosting onsite sessions of “Summon Web-Scale Discovery for CLIC” in April. Kevin Lane-Cummings, ProQuest Senior Training and Consulting Partner, will conduct the training sessions focusing on the public side of Summon. 

Topics covered will include:
-Introduction to Web-Scale Discovery and the creation of Summon.
-How Summon works (the Summon Index, your Summon site, match and merge, relevancy, and linking).
-Live demonstration of the user interface.
-How librarians can promote Summon to their users (examples of libraries' integration of Summon into their web sites).
-Additional Resources (help, support documents, etc.).

Sessions are open to the staff of CLIC member libraries. To register to attend one of the sessions, use this online form:
