CLIO introduces “Best Bets” feature

CLIO has added new functionality designed to get researchers to our most frequently used resources and web sites with less typing and fewer clicks.

As you type in a search term if it matches one of these resources you will see a direct link displayed below your search:

The links are chosen as the most likely “best link” for a given resource. In the example above this is the one (and only) record in CLIO that provides immediate electronic access to the entire run of the New York Times. Selecting the link (by keyboard or mouse) will take you directly to that resource.

Because CLIO is also used to provide search services for our Web sites we will be including some links to those as well:

Finally, these links will be rolled out on our web site as well:

As always we’ll be interested in hearing how this works for you. Your comments and suggestions play an important role in guiding our work to keep making CLIO better.

Please use the Suggestions & Feedback form under the “Help” menu in the upper right corner of CLIO, or Ask a Librarian.
