LionSearch Update

Submitted by Binky Lush

The October 15 Summon upgrade added the following enhancements to Lionsearch:


  • Accessibility
    ProQuest has added improved keyboard navigation, modal dialog support, and ARIA Alerts. In their next release they will achieve WCAG 2.0 compliance by changing some text and link colors to increase contrast.
  • Advanced Search
    users can select more than one content type as they have converted the Content Type drop-down to a multiple select option
  • Faster page loads
    ProQuest has increased the speed of page loads for Summon 2.0 by modifying the user interface so that assets load asynchronously
