A Single Search Box Is Just Not Enough for Users
Everyone gets excited about the concept of a single search box and the amount of content that is available for discovery, but that is just one part of the discovery ecosystem. Users need better access to content and more librarian guidance to go beyond the top 3 to 5 search results that appear, and tools to store, share and collaborate the content they are accessing. Join ProQuest and Information Today, Inc for a webinar where we will discuss this and much more.
In this session you will hear Amy Fry (Electronic Resources Librarian, Bowling Green State University) share her experience in addressing user needs within the discovery process and from Eddie Neuwirth (Sr. Product Manager, ProQuest) on how ProQuest is transforming the research lifecycle– with new innovations, technologies and opportunities to benefit users and librarians worldwide with the Summon® service, 360 Link and ProQuest Flow™.

360 Link users are excited about the latest innovations for 360 Link, Index-Enhanced Direct Linking (IEDL) and the Sidebar Helper frame, since together they provide a superior user experience and increase the value of the library within the research process.
