Innovative Launches Inspire Discovery for More Efficient Searches
Innovative rolled out Inspire Discovery, the first module of a new library platform, at two places in the U.S.: Cairn University in Pennsylvania and Hillsdale College in Michigan. Inspire Discovery “revolutionizes traditional search-and-find by delivering curated information in context. The results are displayed in an intuitive, visual interface that’s easy to use.” This includes a “Context Wheel allowing people to ‘see’ and navigate relationships between authors, concepts, and resources.”
“One of the common threads in our solicited and unsolicited user feedback, since launching Inspire Discovery, is the ease in locating quality resources. The Cairn library staff are beyond pleased with the favorable feedback from our community and see ourselves as fortunate for the opportunity to be a part of this new solution from the ground up,” says Stephanie Kaceli, Cairn University’s library director.
“We are excited about the potential of Inspire Discovery to enhance discovery by allowing our system to fully participate in the semantic web. Our users expect efficient and powerful research tools, and Inspire will be that, for sure,” says Maurine McCourry, Hillsdale College’s library director.
