eLibrary Topic Search

  • eLibrary topic search allows users to locate articles and multimedia resources
    • Relevant to K-12 curricula and user interests
slide3

eLibrary Topic Search

  • Use eLibrary topic search to:
    • Search our entire collection of periodicals, books, and multimedia
    • Locate the most relevant information easily using weighted indexing
    • Find similar content quickly using the “more documents like this” feature
    • Query within single or multiple topic categories in one easy search
slide4

Topic Search Technology

Use a powerful index built for K-12 research

  • Combines our award-winning Homework Central topic tree and advanced semantics software
  • Based on K-12 curricula and homework subjects
  • Includes more than 15,000 topics and sub-topics
slide5

Complete Indexing

Search the entire collection, not a subset

  • eLibrary provides topic indexing for every source in the database
  • Indexing occurs daily so you can search even the most current content
  • Includes maps, pictures, multimedia, and websites
  • Includes current and archival information
slide6

Relevant Results

Identify relevant information with weighted indexing

  • Every article receives three topic terms
  • A Strength Meter expresses the relative weight of the topics to each other
  • Hyperlinks within topics allow users to execute new queries based on related topics
slide7

Weighted Topic Examples

Fig. 1: The last topic features less prominently in the article than the first two topics.

Fig. 2: The first topic features more prominently in the article than the next two topics.

slide8

Find “More Document Like This”

Locate additional articles related to an item in eLibrary

  • More Documents Like This will locate additional content with the same three topics
  • In this example, we will locate articles with the topics: hurricanes, introduction to hurricanes, and how hurricanes form.
slide9

“More Document Like This” Results

Locate additional articles related to an item in eLibrary

  • Article results are sorted by weighted relevancy to the three topics in our article, “What causes hurricanes?”
slide10

Search Within Topics

Query within a topic or multiple topics to pinpoint results

  • eLibrary contains 15,000+ topics and sub-topics
  • Launch topic search from advanced search or the topic tree page to find your topic
  • Once identified, add additional limiters such as keyword, media type, date, etc.
slide11

Search Within Topics Example

Search Within Topic

  • Browse or search the topic tree until you locate a topic or subtopic of interest
  • Click Search within this topic once you’ve found the topic you want to search against
  • The topic is then added to advanced search
  • In this example, we can now search within the topic, First Nation, Land Claims
slide12

Search Within Topics Results

Search Within Topic

  • All article results contain the indexed topic
  • Article results are sorted by relevancy, in this example, our query was Canada
  • Article results may also be re-sorted by date, media type, publication, title, file size, or reading/Lexile level
