IET Launches Next Generation IET Digital Library

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), in partnership with Publishing Technology, re-engineered its IET Digital Library, the central access point for the organization’s online content, with an abundance of new user-friendly features. Launched on Publishing Technology’s pub2web platform with intrinsic semantic web technology, the fully redeveloped online hub is designed to improve the speed and ease with which academic and corporate users and the Institution’s 150,000-plus international members access its wealth of digital content.

The IET Digital Library houses all of the IET’s engineering research and information, which includes content from 128 journal and magazine titles, 300 ebooks, and 1,300 conference publications, comprising 255,000 articles ranging back to 1872, 5,000 ebook chapters, and 36,300 conference papers. The IET’s recently announced open access journal, The Journal of Engineering will also be added to the site in April.

The new IET Digital Library features a number of new features to enhance the user experience and support an agile strategy for monetization. Key highlights include the following:

  • Improved navigation and more efficient discoverability and search capabilities across the site, such as, enhanced faceted navigation via the IET Inspec classification system and new concept pages allowing navigation through all content types (journal, magazine, and book content) via a subject entry page, driven by the classification hierarchy 
  • new authentication options for all users including single sign-on functionality for members, providing ease of access across all IET products 
  • integration with social networks, including Mendeley, Google, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn
  • flexible bundling and pricing options for journal and book collections 
  • bespoke licence models and discounts as well as members-only access benefits
  • publisher tools for improved librarian and customer support and communication
