1Search Gets a New Look

You may have noticed a slight change in the way search results are displayed in 1Search, Van Wylen Library’s 1-stop search stop. This 2.0-upgraded version is designed with the user in mind, making searches easier and more intuitive.

Like before, the facets on the left allow you to refine your results by content type, discipline, publication date, and much more (see image below). The search results are displayed in the middle, with clear indications as to whether something is available online or in print. News results are aggregated together, instead of interspersed throughout the search. Images are now clustered, as well, making them easier than ever to identify.

1Search 2.0

Hovering over a search result displays summary and publication information on the right. You may choose to cite the result or email the citation from the right-hand search display. Advanced searching is still available by choosing the drop-down arrow from the search box.

There are many ways to make your search experience fruitful using 1Search. As always, contact a librarian for any research-related help.
