Taking advantage of our intuitive PowerSearch interface, the InfoTrac suite offers library users the ability to search large or bespoke collections of thousands of newspapers, magazines and journals through one single platform. These periodical collections provide the in-depth, up-to-date information library users need to conduct research across a vast range of topics. We strive to make these collections largely embargo free and offer library users  unique content that is not available anywhere else online.

Based on user feedback, recent enhancements and additions to InfoTrac (both in content and functionality) include:

  • more than 1,500 new titles added last year 
  • search alerts and RSS feeds to help keep users informed of new content 
  • search assist with 'did you mean?' and 'also try' functionality, saving users time and offering web search functionality similar to Google
  • enhanced subject and publication search
  • a read speaker that reads English and non-English documents and facilitates MP3 downloads
  • translation from and into English 
  • video, image and podcast galleries

The two InfoTrac collections included in this offer to libraries are InfoTrac NewsStand (newspaper aggregation) and InfoTrac Custom Journals (magazine and periodical aggregation) - both of which are cross-searchable and allow for customization of content.
