Upgrading YorSearch

Posted on 30 January 2018

We are upgrading the functionality of the YorSearch catalogue on Tuesday 6 February.

We will be launching Syndetics Unbound to provide an “Amazon-like” interactive exploration experience through YorSearch, the Library catalogue. The improvements are being made in response to user feedback that we received during our recent Understanding Academics project.

The features being added to YorSearch are:

  • Links to further items by the same author;
  • Author biographies;
  • “Look inside” functionality to allow you to see a table of contents, summaries and chapter excerpts;
  • Links to similar items in the University’s collection with a “You may also like” section;
  • The use of tags to allow you to find similar content more easily. 

If you have any questions or feedback about the YorSearch please contact us.
