News from Library IT

Library IT has two service updates rolling out this September!

New Quicksearch Features

Wednesday, September 6 we will begin the rollout of new Quicksearch features, which will include the Books+ Advanced Search, Database A-Z list, and HathiTrust link features, as well as many smaller improvements.

During the day on Wednesday, users will not be able to log into Quicksearch while we upgrade our software. Quicksearch will still be available for Search and Discovery of Orbis, Morris, Articles+, and Digital Collections. Library IT will send out an announcement to Yulib when the upgrade is complete, and full service is once more available on Quicksearch.

The Quicksearch upgrade has been a complex, collaborative project involving nine Library IT staff, the Quicksearch Advisory Group, and other staff from around the Library system. Numerous staff have helped with testing, contributed to the creation of requirements, and participated in training and information sessions like Advanced SearchFest in August.

If you have any questions or feedback on these features, please contact
Suzanne Lovejoy at suzanne.lovejoy@yale.edu and Kalee Sprague at kalee.sprague@yale.edu

We are excited to announce we are launching Zoom as our new video and webconferencing tool!
