If you hear these terms mentioned, here is what they mean!

  • Talis: refers to a system called Talis Aspire, better known to students and staff as Resource Lists.
  • Summon (or Summons): Summon is the brand name for our federated search engine, better known as Library Search.

Us librarians try to avoid using the brand or company names as we think Library Search and Resource Lists might be a bit more meaningful.
