HathiTrust Enhances Full Text Database Search Along With Collection Builder Tool
Four new features are now live for users when conducting research using HathiTrust full text search database and collection builder tool.
The Full-text Search index now includes bibliographic data, which is being used to:
- Improve results ranking
- Allow users to refine results using bibliographic facets
Remember, a large number of items (including domain titles) from the Google Books program are included in the HathiTrust database. This is a great way to full text search AND now be able to use the bibliographic data to simply click and refine the results.
In Collection Builder, the display of collections has been improved, and you can now:
- Search collections by title and description
- Filter collections by featured status, most recently updated, those created by the user, and number of items in the collection
