You can learn more about Kortext Premium, our biggest launch this Autumn, here.
Our iOS, Mac, Android and Windows apps have all been given a refresh this Autumn. They now offer a slicker user experience thanks to small, subtle changes to the interface. They are also much more aesthetically pleasing!
Collections are here! Our 13,000 strong OER collection is now available on native and mobile apps. This is also now supported by improved functionality, such as a ‘Recently Viewed’ section and more granular search and filter options.
We have redeveloped our iOS app ahead of the new academic year. Now, all Apple devices share the same codebase, which will help make further improvements and updates a lot simpler. Alongside the new UI, you can also now use split screen with other apps on all devices that support it.
Library Service Enhancements
Improvements and amendments have been made to the 'Search Kortext' filters on both Acquisitions and the Academic inventories. These include showing item counts for 'Author' and 'Publisher' facets during search, showing multiple publishers or publication years at once, and more.
Historic data will now be preserved within the system logs, enabling Analytics to access pre-created data as opposed to generating data links through the interface. This will improve precision and minimise backfills!
New toggles and filters relating to OERs have been added to our Analytics dashboard. This allows users to separate content usage for OERs. More granular evaluation of the content usage within our collections can also be conducted now!
