The Masland Library staff has teamed up with Innovative: a library software and services company for over 10,000 libraries worldwide. Innovative develops new technology to optimize libraries’ research capabilities, and Cairn was one of two higher-ed institutions to help develop the new search engine, Inspire Discovery. The engine’s context wheel provides researchers with a visual of the relationships between what they search for and what could be other sources pertinent to their research. This new tool helps students find the best possible resources—including print books, e-books, articles, and media—that they may not have thought of themselves.
