UniSearch setting modified – “Available via LiU” now default


** Detta blogginlägg är också tillgängligt på svenska **

In the library search service UniSearch, you can search all material types, e.g. journal articles, books, reports etc., in almost all available databases. Previously, the default has been set to search content regardless if LiU users have access to that content or not.

Search results have therefore included material not immediately accessible (but in many cases available through interlibrary loans).

The default setting has now been changed to only include material available via LiU’s print or electronic collections. If you want to expand your search to include material not available via LiU, you can remove the setting “Available via LiU” under Limit search.

The modified default setting will in many cases result in a more manageable search result. Since Linköping University Library’s collections include a wide selection of electronic journals, ebooks and print publications, you will still have plenty to choose from. The possibility to request interlibrary loans of material that is not included in LiU’s collections is unchanged.

A corresponding modification will also be implemented in the search box on the library web, under “Modify”.
