The Birmingham Public Library introduces a new service with the ability to search once for all relevant citations, eliminating the need to repeat the same search in each separate database.
Research Pro, a federated-search product, uses sophisticated technologies to search across most of the Birmingham Public Library’s databases and the library catalog. Patrons can search all of the 52 databases at once or choose from seven subject categories for a more specific list of magazine articles, encyclopedia entries, books, images and much more. It is also possible to search an individual database such as HeritageQuest, the Birmingham News, the Oxford English Dictionary, Grove Art Online and Health Source Plus.
Please try it out.
