UF Digital Collections Update

For the UF Digital Collections, in addition to under-the-hood work, there are some new updates that you can see:

Advanced Search update: https://ufdc.ufl.edu/search

  • The Advanced search page is updated for clarity on what is being searched and search options.
  • This will soon also be in place for the Florida Digital Newspaper Library and Digital Library of the Caribbean.

Alert on the UFDC pages for the Florida Newspaper collection:

  • Users had experienced confusion using UFDC with the newspaper collection, instead of the new Florida Digital Newspaper site, which has additional features (like the titles list with the ability to browse by county). Now, the Florida newspaper collections in UFDC show an alert to remind folks to check the new site.

Spatial Coverage:

  • There was a sporadic error on “Spatial Coverage” that has been corrected.

Thanks to Todd and the whole Library User Resources Discovery Committee for working to best support users and usability!

As always, please share feedback and any questions with LTS-UFDC@uflib.ufl.edu.
