Emeryville, CA, United States, 2011/08/19 - Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale Law School is live with Encore Synergy 4.1, which offers expanded article access, advanced search, and a new Cobalt look and feel option inspired by usability testing and user feedback - EncoreForLibraries.com / III.com.
Among other sources, the Library is integrating articles from LegalTrac™, JSTOR®, and HeinOnline™.
"'We've been pleased by the reaction that article integration is getting in our Advanced Legal Research class,"' says John Nann, Associate Librarian for Reference at the Library. "We've also seen the results in the citations in their papers, which is a key factor of the class. The students also use Hein resources a lot and having them prominent in Encore Synergy is valuable to them."
Nann continues: "I have been won over by the way Encore brings the most relevant articles to the initial results screen. I have been a power user of catalogs but I am seeing results that are 'on point' and generate value for researchers across the school population."
