Engineering Village adds AutoSuggest, Mendeley web importer and new download formats

on Fri, 01/31/2014 - 13:43

The following new features were released on www.engineeringvillage.com on January 30, 2014.

 

  1. AutoSuggest based on the Ei Thesaurus
  2. New Download format .xls
  3. Mendeley Web importer
  4. Modal Overlay awareness tool

 

AutoSuggest powered by the EI Thesaurus

Finding search terms can be difficult especially for novice users of the platform. AutoSuggest on Engineering Village helps engineering researchers find terms quickly by displaying a list of suggested engineering terms based on the 20,000 terms located within the most trusted engineering Thesaurus available, the Ei Thesaurus.

 

After the third character is entered in the search bar, AutoSuggest will present an alphabetical listing of engineering terms from the Ei Thesaurus. As the user continues to type, the listing of terms will adjust accordingly. User testing has shown that this gives users a faster way to find engineering terms, improved search results by locating better engineering terms and reduced chance of spelling the term incorrectly.
