Enjoy a New Search Experience!

On the surface, nothing's changed.  Our homepage looks the same as it did yesterday.  But below the surface, a lot has changed.  That white search box?  The one under "Start your research here"? It's a whole lot different.

The consortium of university and college libraries in Nova Scotia (you know it as Novanet) has invested in a new and better way to get access to our vast print and online collections.  Now, when you type some words into that box, it will be easier than ever to find the books, fulltext articles, e-books and other materials you need.

The new, streamlined interface offers many things we think you'll love, including :
  •  Immediate indication whether a book is available (or not)
  • Just one click to get the fulltext of articles
  • Improved subject indexing
  • Easy access to your Novanet account so you can request materials or renew loans online
  • Access to LiveHelp chat for assistance with your research questions
So the results page will have a new look and feel.  And we're confident you'll get used to it in no time.  But it's brand new and we're still experimenting with some of the features.  So if there are any things you don't like, or things you think could be improved, let me know at ron.houlihan@smu.ca and I'll pass them along.

It's not perfect.  But we're getting closer....
