Explora™ and Explora Canada users can now see a new floating content box on the search results page. This new "Research Tips" content, courtesy of PrepSTEP® for High Schools from EBSCO LearningExpress, is designed to support information literacy instruction in middle and high schools.
"Research Tips" include:
- Search tips
- Is this the right source for me?
- How do I cite this source?
- Worried about plagiarism?
- Improve your writing!
Once a user runs a search and begins to scroll through search results, the Research Tips placard will appear and will remain on the screen until the user closes it.
Clicking on a link — such as "Worried about plagiarism?" — will launch a new browser window and bring you to the information literacy web pages on LearningExpress.
The feature was automatically enabled in May 2018 for all customers with Explora and Explora Canada profiles for secondary schools (src_ic or ehcs) enabled on their EBSCOadmin™ accounts, but only if the profile does not use bottom branding. For profiles with bottom branding, library administrators will need to take additional steps to enable the feature.
To enable or disable the floating "Research Tips" box, click here for instructions.
Please contact Customer Support with any questions or concerns.
How do I add bottom branding to my profile?
