Summon

Summon Working Group

Ex Libris manages the development of Summon, 360, and Intota.   The new IGeLU Working Group looks to all aspects of the products but with special attention to the 360 Knowledge base, 360 Link interface, Summon Knowledge base, Summon user interface (UX) and the Summon API.  See the comprehensive support resources listed by our ELUNA Summon WG colleagues.

Enhancements and regular contact

The role of the Working Group is to maintain contact with Ex Libris product management on a regular basis to raise concerns and share information in a conference call once a month. Ex Libris has agreed to devote 150 development points (the same as for Primo) to the customer enhancement process. IGeLU (and ELUNA) use a system NERS where customers suggest and vote on new features. Ex Libris is then committed to developing those features using development points. The more complex the enhancement, the more points. Only members of IGeLU (or ELUNA) can participate in the enhancement process.

Conference work

Another important role of the Working Group is to participate in the organisation of the annual user conference. This helps to promote user initiatives and a build a strong Summon/360 track.

  • Catherine Broadley, Senior Assistant Librarian, Manchester Metropolitan University (UK)
