More news on WilsonWeb Mobile

For WilsonWeb subscribers who access the Internet using an iPhone, an Android phone, a Blackberry, an iPad or some other mobile device, we have developed WilsonWeb Mobile as a way of accessing trusted information on the go. Although this new interface is not a replacement for the traditional desktop version, it will certainly duplicate the quality search results that librarians and patrons have come to expect from their WilsonWeb databases.

The WilsonWeb Mobile application will include the following features:
  • A separate database selection screen
  • Basic and Advanced Search screens
  • Cross-database searching (search multiple databases at the same time)
  • Wilson's renowned All-Smart Search
  • Relevancy ranking of results
  • Record indicators/icons, including Full Text, Peer-Reviewed, Non-Peer Reviewed, WilsonLink (link resolver), holdings, and InterLibrary Loan
  • ReadSpeaker text-to-speech converter (HTML Full Text Audio)
  • Language translations of both the interface and articles
  • Images from Biography databases, Art Museum Image Gallery, Cinema Image Gallery, and more
  • Email
  • Record navigation and linkable fields
  • Co-branding icons or graphics for libraries
  • Customization in the Adminstrator's Module
  • Referring page authentication (created by each library)
  • Searching results included in library's usage statistics (COUNTER and WilsonWeb's "Standard" statistic reports)
This service will be launching very soon. For more information, check out our website, or follow us on Twitter for updates.
