What does the 'Add results beyond your library's collection' feature do?
The Add results beyond your library's collection feature modifies the search to include the entire Summon index (with the exception of other institutions' catalog records and Abstracting & Indexing (A&I) content (unless the resource is open access). Items from the entire Summon index are returned in search results, including resources to which the library does not subscribe.
Choose to expand your search by selecting the checkbox on the Advanced Search screen:
In the search results set, a resource to which the library does not subscribe is indicated by the exclusion of the Online icon and the availability "Citation Online" rather than "Full Text Online".
Selecting an item takes you to the library's link resolver which, depending on the library's setup of the resolver, may provide a way to request the item.
