Summon – Looking for a particular date or range?

Date Posted: July 31, 2013

If you want to limit your Summon search results to a particular date or date range it is best to use the Publication Date range tool in Summon rather than typing the date in as part of the search.  So if you want articles on “pet therapy” from 2010 to the present or from 2010-2011 don’t type“pet therapy” 2010 into the search box.  Instead run the search on “pet therapy” – after you get your results screen look to left hand column and either use the bar slider or type in the date you want:

date range

If you have a closing date type that in

Looking for Company histories?

Date Posted: July 16, 2013

Looking for Company histories?  The International Directory of Company Histories is the place to look!

This multi-volume work is the first major reference to bring together histories of companies that are a leading influence in a particular industry or geographic location.

Each three- to five-page entry is meticulously detailed with facts gathered from popular magazines, academic periodicals, books, annual reports and the archives of the companies themselves. Entries provide information on founders, expansions and losses, labor/management actions, NAICS codes, key dates, ticker symbol, principal subsidiaries, principal divisions, principal operating units, principle competitors and other significant milestones — all peppered with statistics, dates and names of key players.
