- the sort drop-down doesn’t resort results
- the search term(s) don’t re-appear in the search
- the preview overlay window for each result doesn’t open
- the “Feedback” link doesn’t open the feedback form

Serials Solutions, the company who develop Summon, are aware of the problem and we expect the issues to be resolved a.s.a.p.

We have trial access to AJBL until 31st March 2011 - The AJ Buildings Library is the new fully searchable, online database of photographs, plans, technical details and data on the most important buildings in British architecture. Using the intuitive search, you can quickly locate the building you are looking for. Each project featured in this paid-for digital service has full project data (more than 20 items of information) and comprehensive architectural photographs and drawings (plans, elevation, section) – all provided at high resolution.
The database is continuing to grow. The dedicated Buildings Library Editor is requesting and publishing dozens of new projects every month, as well as pulling classic schemes from the AJ archives.
