University of Tokyo Selects the Summon Discovery Service of Serials Solutions
Oct 23 13
The University of Tokyo Library in Japan recently selected the Summon(R) discovery service from Serials Solutions. The powerful navigation and contextual guidance features in the Summon service significantly advance the research experience for both novice and experienced researchers. Librarians at the University of Tokyo will now have a better way to connect with more users, customize the discovery experience and lead users to better research outcomes. The Summon service supports discovery of content regardless of where the library purchased the resource or which provider hosts it. Unlike other discovery services, the Summon service leverages a unique match and merge technology that combines different types of metadata and information from multiple sources creating a single record optimized for discovery. This unique approach exposes resources to more users, directs researchers to full text when available, and maximizes the value and usage of a library's collections.

MnPALS will be able to centralize and simplify e-resource management for member libraries by using 360 Resource Manager Consortium Edition.
