Search Boxes

To add a Summon Search Box to your web page, you can use the following HTML snippet:

<form method="GET" action="http://MYDOMAIN.summon.serialssolutions.com/search">
<input type="text" name="q">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
</form>
 

You can also add preselected facets to create more specific search boxes. Here is an example of a search box that only search Journal Articles:

<form method="GET" action="http://MYDOMAIN.summon.serialssolutions.com/search">
<input type="hidden" name="fvf[]" value="ContentType,Journal Article">
<input type="text" name="q">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
</form>

Here is a more complex search box. This will scope the Summon search to Scholarly Journal Articles that are related to Biology.

<form method="GET" action="http://MYDOMAIN.summon.serialssolutions.com/search">
<input type="hidden" name="fvf[]" value="isScholarly,true">
<input type="hidden" name="fvf[]" value="ContentType,Journal Article">
<input type="hidden" name="fvgf[]" value="SubjectTerms,or,biology,biological sciences)">
<input type="text" name="q">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
</form>

Just replace MYDOMAIN with your institutions domain name before adding the HTML snippet to your web page.
