Reclaim Your Library!
Today, libraries serve to connect people to information, whether on shelves or in digital content. Unfortunately, many uninformed researchers begin their search on Google. But Google falls short of delivering the best, most relevant, most authoritative information because Google only searches public databases. Libraries, on the other hand, have access to rich subscription content and so should be the definitive start place in a researcher’s quest for knowledge. Explorit Everywhere! can help.
3 Facts about your Library and Google.
- 94% of your students look to Google first for research.
- Your online subscriptions are being underutilized.
- Discovery services have failed to solve your problems
Explorit Everywhere! provides a single search box to access all of your subscriptions, digital catalog and public resources. Search is simple, as is finding relevant results. And the Explorit Everywhere! search box can be placed in multiple places, on multiple devices, for any researcher with access.

“The digital revolution and the explosion in the number of relevant online resources are fantastic opportunities, but also a great challenge,” said Michael Keller, University Librarian. “We chose Deep Web Technologies so that we can reduce the amount of time students and faculty spend searching, and make it easier for them to find precisely relevant information on multidisciplinary research topics.”
