The “Articles & more” tab

  • “Articles & more” is based on the Web-Scale Discovery-Service “Summon” from Exlibris/Proquest which indexes numerous journals and full-text databases. The Summon index currently indexes around 40 million titles (e-books, e-journals, and databases) with approximately 4 billion records. When using the “Articles & more” tab, however, only products licensed by Heidelberg University are taken into account by the index.
  • If you activate the option “Add results beyond Heidelberg libraries collection” in the left control bar, the entire index is taken into account, i.e. there is no longer a restriction to the content licensed by the university. Please note that in many cases the full texts behind the hits are not available for members of Heidelberg University.
  • “Articles & more” include texts in a variety of languages, it is advisable to enter search terms in various languages.
