While many libraries are today looking at The Summon Service as a web-scale discovery solution built on unified index, 360 Search federated search also gives libraries the opportunity to use a single search box for finding the multiple resources and highly credible content that your library offers. With one query, 360 Search combs your OPAC, ejournals, ebooks, archives, directories and various local holdings, and includes them in a single set of relevant results.
Results Clustering helps patrons find answers faster by providing a quick, intuitive path to citations that share common topics, dates, journals, and authors. Automatic de-duplication saves them from scanning redundant results.
An intuitive interface empowers researchers of all levels who are familiar with popular Web search engines. Advanced users can build Boolean queries and limit searches to specific metadata fields such as author, title, and abstract.
