    Summon: Contextual Relationships

    Return to menu

    Central Discovery Index (CDI) tracks and displays relationships between items, enabling users to explore these relationships in Summon search results. Currently, the following relationships are supported:

    Supported Related Reading Relationships
    Relation from Relation to Usage


    Chapters of the book

    Allows users to view specific chapters from the book.


    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):
