The Interior Health library catalog search interface has been given a revamp to modernize the experience and improve the functionality. The old interface using WebPublisher PRO (figures 1&3) expected users to figure out how to construct their searches in advance. The new interface (figures 2&4) using the Andornot Discovery Interface (AnDI) allows users to put in their keywords and then narrow down the hits from the results screen.
This, plus the more forgiving search syntax with built in automatic typo and spelling corrections with “Did you Mean?” suggestions, will result in an improved search experience for IH staff. In addition the site is now responsive ensuring that it is just as readable on a cell phone or tablet as on a desktop PC.
As before, the new site includes canned search links for special topics and collections, and a more prominent listing of new titles through an embedded RSS feed. Book covers from Open Library are included automatically based on the ISBN field if they are available.
