Rollout
Rollout

  • We didn’t do any publicity; we just launched it by changing pull down menu default on front page

  • Patterned after Michigan State University

  • We didn’t even name it. It was just “Peak,” the same name we gave our classic Innovative catalog



Keyword searching as starting point
Keyword Searching as Starting Point

  • More Google-like

  • Works quite well for known-item searching

  • Is much faster than regular catalog

  • Has no limits to result set

  • Our reference librarians have adjusted quite well to new paradigm



Relevancy ranking

  • Priority on title keyword

  • This can be mitigated by the subject refinement
