Improvements to HONNI discovery service

February 2, 2015

A number of improvements have recently been made to the HONNI Catalogue and resource discovery service:

  1. The basic search screen now uses a tabbed search facility. The ‘New Search’ link redirects to the basic search screen instead of the HONNI home page, which ensures that you remain logged in and do not lose previous searches when you click ‘New Search’.
  2. The ‘Electronic Resources’ category under Resource Types now accurately includes all e-journals as well as e-books. Previously many of these were missing due to the way in which the system identified resources for inclusion but this problem has now been resolved.
  3. The results display has been cleaned up to help ensure that there are no entries in the holdings table for items which are not available.

There have been other small changes to improve the display and we are continuing our efforts to improve the system.  Issues such as the number of e-journal links displayed and the Resource Type categories used for refining results are high on the agenda.  Information about further developments will be posted to the Library Notices as it becomes available.
