Making available a list of the resources indexed in Summon Index
It would be great to have an up-to-date list of what is in the Summon Index. Or have a new column in the Center Center for each database, indicating if it is in the Index or not.
Today, when we select a database as "subscribed" in the Client Center, we are not sure whether this database is in the Summon Index or not. So we have to check in Summon by clicking "Add results beyond your library's collection" and see what shows up in the results. This is tedious.
In the November release we will be adding a column into the Client Center that shows what’s indexed.

The list is still available in the Knowledge base, it just hasn't been updated since 2014. (Well, sort of.) The list is actually on the Dartmouth University Library LibGuides site, as part of their Summon help. http://researchguides.dartmouth.edu/summonhelp/summoncontent
It would be very helpful to have an up-to-date list!
Even better would be to list the index coverage for Summon right in the KB record; right under the checkbox for including the title in Summon.

A few years ago that list was available, it was called "Summon Key databases & packages - full text and if I remeber correctly there was also another one for the index. It was using it regularly, too bad they don't publish it anymore.
