Engineering Village interface update

On August 2nd, Engineering Village has updated and refreshed its user interface to improve usability. The updated interface provides a modern interface experience and has all the previous navigation and high-quality functionality that users rely upon for managing engineering research. This interface refresh was completed with user input via focus groups and interviews with librarians and users.

We welcome you to experience the Engineering Village updated interface today and discover how we made your searching and browsing easier.

Highlights of the interface update include:

  1. New Header navigation: The new header includes Search options (quick, expert and thesaurus-based search), Results, Alerts and selected records.
  2. Quick Search options: The main search options such as the Database(s) selection, Date, Language and Document Type are all contained in one navigation section below the form.
  3. Personalization details: Personalized features such as Alerts & Saved searches and My preferences are now grouped under a pull-down menu.

Numeric Data search

What’s the fastest way to get the information you need to complete your engineering projects? Numeric Data search is an easy-to-use feature that overcomes the major obstacle to identifying relevant research based on numeric data. Our content experts have developed a video that gives instructions on how to use the Numeric Search feature
