Big Changes to ISearch are Almost Here

Written by Erica Clay on Wednesday, 17 August 2016. Posted in Posts

On August 17th, all instances of ISearch that begin with the URL isearch.infohio.org or isearch2.infohio.org are being upgraded. What's changing besides the color scheme? ISearch has some nice new features! The first thing you'll notice is that all tabs now display in a single row. There's no need to "tab down" to research resources.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And those quotes? They actually work! Put quotes around a short phrase to require ISearch to search for that exact phrase within all tabs.

Weather your school uses Google Apps for Education or something else, many articles now include an option to Send PDF to my Cloud or upload to Google Classroom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ISearch now has improved list-making and list-saving abilities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For any item you wish to keep from any tab, select the check box and choose the "Add to My Lists" option from the drop-down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Log into your library account to keep your list for future use.
