ProSearch News

On Monday, February 18th, users may experience brief interruptions in ProSearch availability while the provider performs some maintenance. We are unable to provide a specific time for this, and we thank you for your patience.

We would like to draw your attention to two new features in ProSearch:

First, there is now an option to choose Full Text Only before or during a search. Tick the box right under the search box. A .pdf or html icon appears under each results list item. If clicking this icon does not bring you to full text, please try the FindIt! button instead. We have seen a few cases where the icon leads to a "404 not found" message, although full text is available.

The other new feature is a "Visual" display tab for exploring Topics. A mouse-over of subtopics in the circle graph, which appear tiny, will display their text in the center while ProSearch adjusts to display only those results in your list. The results can still be sorted by rank, date, title or author, or limited by collection. Some of our users may prefer this graphical view to the list view of topic categories-- try it out!
