Wolters Kluwer Enhances IntelliConnect Research Platform
Wolters Kluwer Law & Business has released several new enhancements to its research platform, IntelliConnect. The new enhancements include advanced searching, browsing, and viewing capabilities that speed research by helping users pinpoint relevant information faster and easier than ever before.
New enhancements to the IntelliConnect home page make reading, browsing, and navigating even quicker and easier for users. New resizing commands allow for quick and easy adjustment of the panels. The redesigned divider tool allows for manual adjustment of panel widths. The toolbar automatically fits the width of the left panel so users never lose access to commands. In addition, up to 10 tabs are now available, stretching across the full width of the display, with each search resulting in a new tab.
In response to customer feedback, the Browse tree is now wider by default letting users explore their subscription content with less need to move the divider bar. Searching for specific information through the Browse tree has become easier with new functions to pinpoint specific content titles. One click of the new “Expand All” (+) or “Collapse All” (-) icons on the left side of the home page expands or contracts the content search list, saving users time and effort. Selected content is now also available under multiple browse topics providing quick access to materials.
By leveraging new technology, Wolters Kluwer Law & Business has elevated the accuracy of search results and increased the relevancy of search rankings, enabling IntelliConnect users to reach faster, more precise results. Users now have access to a new integrated citation search that allows them to enter a citation reference within search expressions and have their results include both the cited documents, as well as those documents which meet their search criteria. A new filter and a “View All” command allow users to quickly access the citation documents. New pre-search filters also allow users to drill further down in their search results.
