In the local catalog different editions have their own records, and it is important for our users to find the right edition. In Summon sometimes local catalog records merge with other local catalog records so that several editions are shown as one. This makes it difficult for our users to see what edition they are looking at. We would very much like Summon not to merge different catalog records from the local catalog with each other.38 votes
You can request that your catalog records are excluded from merging. Just go to the Summon Admin Console > Content Ingestion > Catalog Merge Settings. Just drag the catalog you want to be excluded from merging from the Include to the Exclude column and click Save at the bottom. This is an all or nothing setting, so it will impact all catalog records.
My library is using Summon API with other third-party system. I would like to see Summon API usage reports(such as basic searches, sessions, facets etc.) in Summon OBI platform28 votes
You should be able to go into your admin console for Summon and view your OBI stats. We can only track interactions with the API. If the OBI interface asks for an additional login when you go to access it, close the OBI window and try accessing OBI from the admin console again.

customize text-to-speech output for blind people19 votes
Most devices have built in support for color inversion or the ability to designate color schemes to meet an end user’s need. We also test our user interface for compliance with text-to-speech readers as well.
We strive for compliance with both VPAT and WCAG standards, and review our standing periodically. If you have feedback on our accessibility support, please open a ticket with our support team and we will address the issue as quickly as possible.
The message indicating this folder is temporary pops up for a few seconds (5 or so) and is only shown on the first tab open. Therefore if a user has more tabs open for research they may not know their items are temporary.8 votes
You can go into the Translations tab in the Summon and change the text to whatever you’d like, including the addition of the word “temporary.”
Hi, I would like Proquest to include Yewno into Summon.5 votes
We have worked with Yewno for common customers to provide support needed for configuring Yewno. To include Yewno on the Summon results page, an institution can embed this code in one of the custom panes in the Summon User Interface.
We're concerned about having these widget builders on the public side.
We'd prefer to offer our faculty code for search widgets with more functionality for embedding in their course materials.5 votes
You can turn the Widget Builder on or off in the Summon Admin Console. Go to Settings and at the bottom of the first screen of options, there is “Enable Widgets Link”. Switch this to “OFF”.
The filter "Scholarly & Peer-Review" and just "Peer-Review" are both in the "REFINE YOUR SEARCH" facet. It would be confusing when users want to search for peer-reviewed articles. It should be "Scholarly items" and "Peer-Review."1 vote
Your institution can change the labels or names on this facet currently. Just go into the Summon Admin Console, select “Translations”. If you use your browser search function, you can quickly find the text “Scholarly & Peer Review” and change it to whatever you would like.
