SearchWorks is part of a new discovery environment that is being developed for Stanford users. With searchworks you can browse by call number across all of the libraries at one time instead of one library at a time in Socrates. Search results are relevancy ranked rather than reverse chronological order. You can also see what’s checked out and what’s online without having to view details. Some similar items are included automatically in the full display format. You can even preview the contents via a link to Google.
One of the greatest challenges in libraries like Stanford’s is finding the right information among all of its holdings and licensed content. Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) has been experimenting with adopting some new technologies and approaches that make discovering the Stanford Libraries’ information resources better, faster, and easier.
One new feature that RSC has just introduced is a structure and sub-structure searching function to help you find relevant articles by drawing your own molecule using ChemAxon’s MarvinSketch or pasting in a ChemDraw or ISIS/Draw file.
They’ve also widened the compound identifiers to include groups and relationships via the ChEBI (Chemical Entities of Biological Interest) ontology. Links to patent information and to compounds in PubChem have also been added.
Most publishers now offer full-text searching for their journals. Deciding where to search — a publisher site or an index is a key decision that impacts what is retrieved. Article level information on publisher sites may be “invisible” to web search engines such as Google. Because web search engines crawl publishers’ sites periodically, you are only searching “snapshots” rather than retrieving the latest information available.
Below are some advantages and disadvantages of doing a full-text search of journal articles on a publisher’s web site.
