Since the introduction of the Summon® discovery service three years ago, Serials Solutions®, a ProQuest® business, continues to rapidly release new functionality. The company announced new catalog display functionality, as well as support for consortia catalogs in the Summon discovery service.

The new catalog detail page improves display of items from both local and consortia catalogs indexed in the Summon service. Optimized to include enrichment content from Syndetic Solutions™ such as book covers and table of contents and LibraryThing ratings and reviews, the catalog detail page was designed to entice the user to access the content. Libraries will now have the option to customize Summon records for catalog items to include additional enrichment content, custom text and intuitive linking options for placing holds, interlibrary loan requests and accessing e-books. Read the full press release here.
