Search It is the Libraries catalog - you can use it to find books, articles, media materials, and more. It includes books and other items that can be ordered from our 36 partner academic libraries in the regional Summit system. Search It is a work in progress right now (that's what happens when over 30 academic libraries move to the same system), so you may want to review the Social Sciences Search It library guide every so often to see updates and get tips for using Search It. Please review the guide for a refresher on the importance of understanding how the scopes work in Search It!
