Summon search defaults changed!

Date Posted: April 4, 2013

We have changed the search defaults for Summon to have Newspaper Articles excluded.  Therefore when you search Summon now,  you will notice that on the left hand side under Refine your Search, the box labelled Exclude Newspaper Articles will be checked.

If you want newspaper articles, just uncheck this option and newspaper articles on your topic will be searched and will appear.
