Search, Discover, Create: An Introduction to the Library’s New Search Platforms
This year, the library introduces two new platforms to assist students and faculty alike in their research needs. One is the new and improved library website, and the other is the library’s new web-scale discovery service.
The new University Library website boasts a responsive design, more straightforward navigation, quick links to library databases and services, and an improved Ask-A-Librarian feature. TUKLAS, on the other hand, is a platform that puts together all of the library’s existing local database sources of books and electronic information materials to offer an all-in-one search solution to users. This session will give a glimpse into the university’s new research platforms with its brand new features.
