No Comments »

On January 30,  Engineering Village introduced a series of site enhancements:

  • AutoSuggest – helps users find terms using the Ei Thesaurus
  • New Download – Excel, CSV, PDF and RTF formats are now available
  • Mendeley Web Importer – one click imports results to Mendeley
  • What’s New – provides a summary of the latest updates

AutoSuggest helps researchers find terms quickly by displaying a list of suggested engineering terms from the 20,000 terms within the most trusted engineering Thesaurus available, Ei Thesaurus.

“Show Preview” will reduce the time to review a record. Users can view more information about a record without leaving the results page. The preview can be hidden by selecing the “Hide Preview” function.

In the last three months, Engineering Village added the following NEW download options:

  • CSV (Comma separated value format)
  • Excel (works with Microsoft Excel®)
  • RTF (works with Microsoft Word®)
  • PDF (Adobe® Portable Document Format)

 

For tips on using the new tools, check out these resources:
