The University of Electro-Communications, by using the discovery service "Summon" of ProQuest, started to provide "Global Material Search (Beta)" from April 2014. By using the "Global Material Search (Beta)", users can search academic materials including books, journals, electric journals, databases, and so on at our university. In this paper, we introduce the history and features of the "Global Material Search (Beta)". In addition, we discuss a development to be able to search by integrating the paper materials and electronic materials, such as books and journals, and two suggestions about the academic search system, such as the service improvement by visualization of subscription information of the electronic resources and the search improvement of the introduction of personalized search.
