On May 31st the library will be introducing a new discovery platform for accessing library resources. The platform is called CLICsearch and will be replacing both Summon and CLICnet. Below is a brief introduction to CLICsearch. For more information feel free to contact a CSP librarian and view our library guide for CLICsearch.
What is CLICsearch?
CLICsearch is a discovery tool that allows researchers to search much of Concordia University Library’s collection simultaneously. Each search returns results from the library’s catalog (formerly CLICnet) and many of the library’s online resources all at once from a single search box.
Why login to CLICsearch?
Login with your standard CSP username and password in order to:
- View expanded results
- Request items from other CLIC libraries
- See your library account
- Renew items online
- Create folders with saved items and search queries
- Access full text off-campus (when available)
What will I find in CLICsearch?
- And more!
Each item listed on the results page includes a citation for that item and links to its full-text or online version (if available) or a catalog record indicating at which CLIC library that item can be found and requested.
What will I NOT find in CLICsearch?
Resources that are not searchable in CLICsearch include some of our subscription databases that primarily provide statistical data or unique material. Such databases include:
- Hoover’s & IBISWorld
- LexisNexis Academic
All of our subscription databases can be accessed and searched directly.
Help beyond CLICsearch
If you would like help searching any of our individual databases, please contact a librarian.
