Summon is a simple yet powerful new search tool that allows researchers to discover the breadth of TU Libraries' collections. Whether you need to find books, newspapers, journal articles, dissertations and theses, music and film, archival material and more, Summon has you covered.
Nothing we have seen in academic search compares with Summon, but the closest analog is Google Scholar. Summon covers all the books and other resources cataloged in Diamond plus a great deal of content from the various library databases. By default Summon searches resources available only to the Temple community. Summon does not cover or reproduce all of the Libraries' content, so it cannot substitute for the core disciplinary databases. Click here to learn more about Summon.

If you're exploring various ways to use your graduate degree in history then check out this unique blog maintained by historian Nicholas Evan Sarantakes. It contains posts of interest to anyone with a graduate degree in the humanities who is looking for career management advice. My favorite post: The History Ph.D. as a Librarian, of course!
Blog Them Out of the Stone Age
A military history blog from the desk of historian Mark Grimsley. One of my favorites.
