Improved Discovery

newimproved MHLS implemented Encore Release 4.5 with new features that strengthen discovery capabilities across local collections and digital content:

  • Patron Account for Encore Mobile
    A native “My Account” in the Encore Mobile application offers a new view of patron features patrons can access without ever leaving the Encore mobile interface. This includes checkouts, holds, fines/fees, programs, preferred searches, reading history, and customized patron lists;
  • Advanced Search
    An improved user interface for the Advanced Search page ensures there is a better understanding of the data limits and expanders that apply to search results; and
  • Genre Facet
    Allows MHLS to add a genre facet in addition to the local facets currently available at that location.
