Subject: The Wikipedia Library: Search feature now available!
The Wikipedia Library team is excited to announce that a centralized
search tool is now available to all users eligible to use the library!
Instead of needing to search across individual collections one-by-one,
you’ll now be able to search content from across a wide range of
collections from one search bar. This search tool uses the EBSCO
Discovery Service software and contains a wide array of filtering and
advanced search options.
To check which collections are indexed, we’ve also added icons and
filters to My Library. Search pulls content from almost all of the
collections which are accessible by default for eligible users (the
Library Bundle). This means you can search with the confidence that
every result will be accessible to you. In the future, we plan to enable
users to turn off this limit, so that you could also search across
collections which require individual applications, but we can’t
guarantee that you’ll be able to access all results in this mode, as
this depends on your individual authorizations.
To check out the search tool just head over to
, log in, and you’ll find the
search bar at the top of your screen.
We hope you find this feature useful, and would love to hear your
Finally, as a reminder, we’re planning to start rolling out an on-wiki
notification to editors who are eligible to use the library in the near
future. Users will only receive the notification once. Please check
to see if you can help translate the notification text!
