LibAnswers Code Update: Full Text Indexing, and More!

The last LibAnswers update was just 4 weeks ago, but our LibAnswers development team has been feeling hyper this August, so we’ve just rolled out some excellent new features!

  • Full-text Search has arrived – WOO HOO! You can now search the full text of question and answer contents, both in the public search screens, and in the KnowledgeBase Explorer. This may add more question hits per search so…
  • We’ve redesigned the search landing page. Now, instead of returning search results on the same page (potentially pushing the question form down the page into oblivion), patrons will see a spiffy new page with search results on the left, and the question form on the right. Check it out, it’s cool!
  • File Attachment upgrades – we have 2 major changes to share: 1)You can now include file attachments when answering private questions. 2)Hey, did I just say attachmentS, plural? You bet I did! Public and Private questions can now have multiple file attachments.
  • New Account Type: Analytics Only (for Reference Analytics clients) – We’ve added a new account type that only allows access to the Reference Analytics transaction screen. This new level allows people to record transactions, and doesn’t allow access to the incoming question queues, creating public answers in the knowledgebase, etc.
As always, thanks to the LibAnswers community for your excellent ideas and feedback!
