Scholars Portal is pleased to announce the full release of the Scholars Portal Books platform, now live at https://books.scholarsportal.info.
All users who accessed the legacy platform now have access to their complete holdings on the new site, including ACE collections and those available to users outside Ontario.
Highlights of the new platform include:
- Smooth HTML page scrolling with a more consistent display across different types of books
- Use of a fully harmonized metadata standard, BITS, which allows for significantly improved browsing and searching across facets
- In-browser concurrent use monitoring, so that use of Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is no longer required. Users will still have the option to use ADE if they’d like to keep a book beyond one reading session.
