JSTOR has recently released “Beta Search,” a completely new JSTOR search, with a redesigned interface and a new search engine. The new search is easily accessible from a link on www.jstor.org.
During the beta period, development efforts will be focused on:
* Refining the new interface: facets that allow easy narrowing/broadening of searches
* Improving relevance rankings: results that more closely match your search terms
* Incorporating new features, including auto-suggested search terms and spell checking
* Enhancing the search results view to support evaluation of relevance: preview article and book details directly from the search results list
