SwetsWise Online Content upgrade goes live


11 June 2013, Leiden, The Netherlands Swets refines access management workflows for libraries and researchers with SwetsWise Online Content upgrade.

Swets announced today that it has released  the latest update to its SwetsWise platform; installing a revitalized end-user environment for users of the SwetsWise Online Content module. The update has been made freely available for all existing SwetsWise Online Content subscribers and is available for use immediately.

Swets’ aim with the product has always been to provide a single point of access to all of a library’s electronic resources and enable direct linking to all full-text, online articles. The latest upgrade introduces more content, improved search functionality and a totally revitalized end-user interface, making search and discovery much more intuitive and hassle free for the user.
With the new SwetsWise Online Content users will find:

  • A brand new interface built around intuitive, unified search functionality
  • More content and improved accessibility than ever before
  • 42 million searchable references, more than 14,500 full text titles from over 5,700 publishers
  • Handy filters to refine search queries for deeper, more precise investigation opportunities
  • Search and Publication alerts for favored titles and more

“One of the main focuses for librarians is to support and simplify the workflows of their researchers, students and patrons. Tailoring a collection of content to suit the demanding needs of users is important but ensuring the availability, discoverability and accessibility of that content is vital to the success of the work undertaken across their institution,” said David Main, CEO at Swets. “Access Management is one of the main pillars of our extensive range of content management services for libraries. The features installed with this free update will make it easier for our customers to streamline user  workflows, stimulate usage across their institution and unlock the potential value of all their electronic resources.”

The administrator tools included in SwetsWise Online Content have received minimal alterations, ensuring library administrators can continue with their existing workflows without disruption.
