Frequently Asked Questions: Search
Why is your search better than our library search?
Based on faculty surveys and feedback, our search is more time efficient than traditional library search due to:
- The inclusion of OER content alongside library content.
- The precision and relevancy of recommended content
- Library search retrieves too many results (because they don't have context of the course - i.e., only search queries)
- Library searches don't record the aggregated use or rating of discovered library content against an institution's courses nor does it use such information for improving relevancy of results over time.
Can I search for resources only in another language?
We do not currently have the functionality to index by language.
Can I search by course level (introductory, undergraduate, graduate)?
We do not currently support the functionality to differentiate assets by course level.
