Further improvements to Discover will be applied during Libraries’ IT maintenance window on the evening of Thursday, February 21.
Some of the improvements occur behind the scenes, but because of them, you should notice a reduced loading time of page results. Another update by the Applications Development and Support team adds more discoverable content via the Library Web Search. Now you can find information about digital exhibits, the Research Commons website, and blogs within the library.osu.edu umbrella.
The Articles+ section of Discover will improve in two significant ways. Based on usability testing with doctoral students and other feedback we received from multiple channels, users will first get resuts that are categorized as peer-reviewed, and also available in full text (owned by OSU). The results will be indicated by the two options automatically checked in the Focus view:
Unchecking either of the two options will change the number of results, offering more options that can be requested via Interlibrary Loan. As always, we are open to feedback, and look forward to your comments.
