    Summon: Contextual Relationships

    Return to menu

    As part of our Central Discovery Index project (CDI), we have started building a graph database that contains relationships between items. This enhancement allows users to explore these relationships in Summon search results. Currently, the following relationships are supported:

    Supported Related Reading Relationships
    Relation from Relation to Usage

    Books

    Chapters of the book

    Allows users to view specific chapters from the book.

    Books

    Reviews of the book

    Allows users to view any related book reviews.

    In the Summon results, each record that contains related items will display a Reviews and Chapters link:

    Reviews and Chapters Link

    When the link is selected, the Reviews and Chapters panel opens on the right side of the page. Depending on the available information, a tab appears for each type of relationship (such as Book Reviews and Book Chapters):
