One thought on “A Quick Guide to Features in Quicksearch beta”

  1. I’m duplicating the search in both Chrome and Firefox. I’m using:
    Search.library.yale.edu

    This guide looks great, except the images are kind of tiny. I cannot quite make out what should be appearing on the images, until I actually reproduce the search in a browser. I performed this task easily, but I’m wondering if someone else might squint, key a couple of things, and give up. What do you think?

    The system is kind of slow today, probably because of the server issues. The response time is painful. I love the toggle feature under format!

    I will continue to play with this new tool!

    I’m very glad to see the timeline.
