Overview

Serials Solutions® will launch its exciting new Results Clustering feature for the Central Search™ federated search service on October 2. Results Clustering employs the renowned Vivísimo’s® clustering technology to automatically organize search results into subject hierarchies that help turn search into research, and help patrons find answers faster. This powerful enhancement is being provided FREE to all Central Search subscribers.

“Vivísimo’s Clustering Engine is an ingenious way to deal with the problem of too many citations from too many resources,” says JR Jenkins, group product manager, “Instead of a single ‘right’ answer to a query, clustering provides the patron with a highly usable and informative overview of the terms, dates, resources, and authors found in the citations. The searcher can drill down into specific topic areas quickly and easily. She is exposed to concepts that surround the query – providing a global view of the term and presenting a powerful springboard into high quality research.”

Results Clustering helps eliminate the information overload found in popular consumer search engines, enabling researchers to quickly identify the resources relevant to their areas of interest. Patrons therefore can spend more time analyzing and interpreting results, and less time searching through irrelevant or inaccessible results.

Clustering is intuitive and easy to use, and no training is required. Because Serials Solutions delivers its services using web-hosted technology, clustering can be deployed by your library with virtually no effort, and also can be customized by Serials Solutions to meet your library’s unique needs.
