The new A-Z pages are now available. So that everyone is clear on what's being changed, added or available, I've created this document to clearly show each feature of the A-Z pages. We have approximately 10 months to configure them before Springshare automatically moves us over from what we currently use.
A-Z Database changes with a quick view of the new Chatbot.
Alerts can be shown on the landing page of the database.
Databases can be marked with colored flags. Flags can be named anything. (e.g. “New”, “Trial”, “Popular”, “Audio”, “Full Text”, “Password at Ref desk”)
Databases can also be marked with a resource icon image.
(e.g. Newspaper related databases can have a tiny newspaper image. ebooks can have a book image with the letter "e" on it. )
Databases can now have logo images next to their name, making it much easier to identify the resource quickly.
The new chatbot was added to the new A-Z page. Click on it on the top right hand side of the page to see how it works. Keep in mind that this is only a demo and that any questions can be asked.
Multiple Filters: The user can now click on a few filters at one time t search the database listing.
This example shows health science and literature subjects being searched at the same time.
Access modes can be added to a database;
