New MBooks!

July 01, 2008

As previously mentioned, we've been working on expanding the functionality of our MBooks system.

The new interface now allows users to create their own collections of MBooks items and view public collections created by others. Users can also do full text searching across all items within a collection.

So, check it out! MBooks Public Collections Page

We have quite a few more enhancements planned down the road that include adding MTagger and making it easier to find MBooks items in Mirlyn.

We quietly released it last week so we could discover any remaining bugs and (my personal nemesis) browser display problems. We hope we caught them all, but please let us know if you experience any weird behavior. You can contact us via mdp-help@umich.edu or the feedback form linked to from the top of every MBooks page.

And please take a few minutes to fill out our quick survey to help us decide what features to add next.

While the MBooks collection looks fine on initial viewing, the list seems rather short. More to come?

Hi Vance,

Thanks for the comment. The collections listed have been created in the last few weeks by staff and MBooks users. We definitely expect the list to get longer over time. We will also be adding larger library collections soon.
