How is discoverE better?
Before, discoverE and EUCLID were operating using different systems. Now, after this upgrade, all the library systems are better integrated and search faster.
Also, because many of the library functions will be more seamless, you will be able to find the information you need in your search results with fewer clicks.
In general, discoverE is intended to be a true "discovery" tool, allowing for the exploration of unexpected connections between items in the Emory catalog, in Emory's databases, and beyond. It allows for both the refinement (and expansion) of searches in a way that was simply not possible with previous systems.
Finally, if you are searching discoverE, you will notice more material included in your search results, with the same ability to refine with facets. In fact, a new COMBINDED SEARCH TAB will allow you to search material from the library catalogs at the same time you search full-text articles from databases.
