6 Reasons You Need to Try the Beta Version of Lane’s Newest Search Engine

October 21st, 2015 by Nicole Soares

Here at Lane Medical Library, we’re constantly innovating and improving our search technology to better meet your needs, and we need your feedback to make our best search engine yet even better.

Here are 6 reasons you need to try the beta version of our newest search engine:

  1. Our most comprehensive search engine yet
    Lane’s newest search engine searches:
    – all 25 million+ PubMed records
    – the full contents of the Lane Catalog (ebooks, print books, journals, databases, and much more)
    – all Grand Rounds videos
    – and the full contents of the Lane website, including information about the wonderful classes Lane offers!
  2. Blazing fast results
    Built using the open source Apache Solr platform, Lane’s most comprehensive search yet is also our fastest.
  3. The most relevant results appear at the top
    Unlike PubMed, [Lane Search] uses relevance ranking to display your search results, which means less scrolling to find the search results you want the most.
  4. More ways to sort your results
    New sorting options allow you to sort your results how you want. Decide if you want to organize your results by relevance, author, title, or year (new to old or old to new).
  5. More ways to filter your results
    Choose from a variety of new filters to help you narrow your search to give you just the results you want to see.
  6. You can help us make it even better!
    We need your help to improve our new Lane Search! You can help us by giving our new Lane Search a try and sharing your feedback.

Can’t wait to get started? Click here to try Lane’s best search engine yet and tell us what you think!


Scanners Replace Photocopiers in the Lane Medical Library

September 2nd, 2015 by Steven Dunlap


New Scanners

Lane Medical Library leaves the 20th century behind as we have replaced the old photocopy machine and the old scanning stations with 3 new scanning stations. You can find one these new scanners in the Consulting area and two will replace the old ones in the Redwood Room. You can scan PDFs to a flash drive or e-mail them to yourself.

You also have the option to use our Scan on Demand Service to have us create PDF files or a paper copy for a fee ($5 for articles within 20 pages and then 20¢ per page after 20).  This will be particularly convenient for when the materials you want are off-site and we must page them. You can order the copy then log in to your DocXpress account to download it later.
