Scribd Introduces Redesigned Discovery Platform

Scribd completed updates to its website after a 4-month project that reshaped its users’ browsing experience. Categories were rebuilt from the top down; for example, niche subcategories such as Space Opera appear under the broad topic of Science Fiction.

Scribd’s editorial team also created curated collections that include Secret History, a selection of nonfiction titles about spies and related secret projects, and Behind the Scenes, which features ebooks about the offscreen events during the making of movies and TV shows.

Other key updates include Scribd Selects on each page with personal notes from Scribd editors and a Top Books page that displays best-sellers, award-winners, and trending titles.

The new browsing experience will soon be available for mobile devices.
