Project MUSE Releases New Advanced Search Interface

From Project MUSE:

Developed in response to customer feedback, the new Advanced Search interface is accessible from a link in the main navigation of every page on the MUSE site. It allows users to directly target their initial searches by content type, MUSE research area, author, publisher, journal title, language of publication, or publication date.

Content from MUSE’s more than 500 journal titles may be filtered between articles and reviews, and may be searched alone or along with the over 22,000 books now on the site. Searches will default to only content to which the user has full-text access, but can be expanded to include all relevant material available in MUSE.

After retrieving an initial results set, searchers may further refine their results using the numerous facets. Notations in the search interface display the number of results available for each faceted item. From the results page, items may be saved and citations exported, and the search query may be saved to be run again at a later date and retrieve the most current content.

A link to the new Advanced Search interface may be found in the upper right corner of every page on the MUSE web site, above the basic Search box also available on every page. Libraries and users may link directly to the Advanced Search at http://muse.jhu.edu/search/advanced#firstLoad.
