New VuFind is up!

Thursday, May 12, 2011 11:35 am

Our discovery interface vufind has been upgraded and just went live. It has some exciting new features that I am sure our students will find useful in accessing resources. You will notice that we have made some changes to the display layout and few links have been moved to places we believe will make them more noticeable and more accessible.

Some of the changes include a “Catalog Options” box that now exist in the top right corner and houses not only several links previously available in the footer like Search History, Ask a librarian (now referred to as “Questions? Ask”), but also the Alpha Browse, My Account, and My Favorites links. The “Advanced Search” link next to the main vufind search box now points to vufind advance search and the “Advance Search (Classic View)” that used to be there is now under “Catalog Options” as “Switch to Classic View” and links to voyager classic view advanced search.

In addition to the new features that I talked about in my previous post, this version of vufind offers the ability to link to Google Books, Open Library, and HathiTrust on the results and records pages.

We have included a “Report a Problem” link under “Catalog Options” and we would encourage users to use this link to provide us with feedback and to report problems. Thanks and enjoy the new vufind!
