It’s been nearly a year since we unveiled Encore, the quick catalogue search interface for the Wellcome Library catalogues. While we work to customise the product to suit our users, we also receive updates from the software developers, the most recent of which took place during the last week of January. This new version of Encore brings with it new ways of searching and exporting your data.

Haven’t found what you’re looking for with a simple word search? Look for the related searches tag cloud to launch a new search on similar topics.

Need access to an item online? You can now refine your search to items available online and those available in print format at the Library. Look for the ‘Availability’ box in the left-hand column after you’ve done a search.

Want to export citations directly to your RefWorks account? Now it’s possible! Just look for the ‘Export to RefWorks’ link, located on most records in the catalogue.

And don’t forget, you can also add your own tags to catalogue records, search for Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine reading lists by tagged course number, and identify hidden gems from many of the Library’s specialised collections.

We welcome all feedback on the Encore catalogue interface. If you haven’t yet checked out Encore, have a go and let us know how you get on. If you’ve been using it for awhile and have comments about how it’s working, we’d like to hear from you, too. You’ll find a link to the online survey here and on each page of search results.
