New EBSCO Search Defaults
In the next couple of weeks, EBSCO will be updating our profile settings to optimize users’ search experiences. These changes were determined after careful, extensive study of user patterns and consideration for customer feedback, and are designed to streamline EBSCOhost searching, while producing the most relevant results.
For example, the Autocomplete functionality will be defaulted ON in the keyword search mode, to assist users who begin entering terms in the Find field by automatically and logically completing them.
Scheduled for 2010: The Result List will display results in order of Relevance, since so many customers have indicated that they prefer their results to be displayed in this way. Search will also default to Find All terms instead of the current Boolean/Phrase mode. That means no more having to put in “AND” or “OR”!!!
