Become a Registered User and Customize AutoSuggest for Compendex
Registered users within Engineering Village now have the ability to turn off the AutoSuggest feature and save that default in their profile in the My Preferences menu.  The Engineering Village AutoSuggest feature helps engineering researchers find relevant information quickly by utilizing a list of descriptive terms assigned to Compendex articles.  As you begin typing a search into the Engineering Village Quick Search form, a list of topic terms or phrases are displayed that match what you are typing.  All you have to do is make a selection and click Search.  By default, the AutoSuggest feature within Compendex is turned on when using Quick Search.  

Did you know?
The AutoSuggest feature is powered by the 20,000 terms from the Ei Thesaurus, which is unique to Compendex on the Engineering Village platform.  The Ei Thesaurus categorizes over 1 million engineering records each year and Engineering researchers rely on the Ei Thesaurus to retrieve items most directly relevant to their research topics.
