New APPsearch is here

Belk Library has a new version of APPsearch!

You will now see a new interface, which has the power to simultaneously search across content from over 100 library databases and the library catalog.

APPsearch will now provide the user with a customized searching experience, based on a variety of search options and tools. Best of all, the new APPsearch displays results super fast.

Another change is the new search box on the library homepage. The new search box is more streamlined, allowing for a more simple and efficient searching experience.

Want an Introduction to EndNote, Zotero, or Mendeley?

We do not have any workshops scheduled so far this summer for learning EndNote, Zotero, or Mendeley, but we can work with you by appointment.  Either in person or web conferencing.  Small groups are welcome also.

Submit a RAP request or contact John Wiswell, wiswellj@appstate.edu.  For Reich College of Education requests, for Zotero, contact Lisa Abbott, abbottlt@appstate.edu.

Coming Soon: New and Improved APPsearch

APPsearch will soon have a new search engine. This summer, we are switching to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). You will notice a new interface (but familiar to those who already search EBSCO products), basic and advanced search options, searching simultaneously across content from over 100 library databases and the library catalog, along with quick display of search results.

You can try it out now and tell us what you think. We are planning on going live at the end of June.
