Paratext announced another new enhancement to the Reference Universe service, namely, youâ€™ll now find your libraryâ€™s e-reference collections more clearly branded within your libraryâ€™s Reference Universe query, making it easier for you to focus in on the resources you value the most.
In addition to showing your entire collection in a single viewâ€“ebook as well as printâ€“Reference Universe now displays your ebooks based on specific collections, e.g. Oxfordâ€™s Digital Reference Shelf; Galeâ€™s Virtual Reference Library; Oxford Reference Online; SpringerLink; Wiley; Blackwell Reference Online; CQ Researcher; CREDO Reference; etc.
This new display feature will considerably increase the visibility and awareness of these valuable e-resources, helping both improve your patronsâ€™ research experience and ensure that you get the most out of your e-reference subscriptions.
