Introducing the New Look ingentaconnect
Publishing Technology plc has announced that its flagship collection of e-publications, ingentaconnect, now has a re-energized look and feel. The new look ingentaconnect has been designed to optimize the end user experience through improved navigation and content discovery.
The new design is the second phase of the platform’s regeneration, with further releases to follow, delivering additional improvements and upgrades to include: a new Publisher Statistics package, integration with an award-winning search engine (Apache Solr), enhanced ahead of print functionality, plus additional content, amounting to 3,600 new titles.
Phase one of the enhancements included a release in March 2010, which featured early compliance with Shibboleth 2, as well as RightsConnect integration and improved Open Access support, amongst many other improvements to enhance its user experience.
It may look dramatically different, but ingentaconnect still maintains its status as a trusted and established research resource, containing 13,500 scholarly and professional publications from 255 leading international publishers, with 2.5 million unique users per month. ingentaconnect continues to be committed to ensuring visibility of publisher’s content via library technology. partnerships with Summon, Primo Central, and EBSCO Discovery Service guarantee publisher’s content is discoverable via the latest range of library products.
While the design represents a significant change to the site there are no changes to the URLs or linking syntax. Link resolvers, bookmarks, and personalization features will all continue to function as before with no action required by readers or librarians.
ingentaconnect mobile will make its debut in the fall.
