You can reach Summon by clicking on the Search Library box on the Durham Tech Library homepage. Login to view articles by using your Durham Tech username and password, the same ones you’d use to login to Sakai or Self-Service. 

Want some tips using search strategies to best communicate what you want with the database search? Explore our Online Learning Resources page.
