For authenticated users, the option to only search on the full-text available via the institution will be displayed below the search bar.
We’ve also redesigned the facets, the sorting options and the advanced search form based on librarians’ feedback:

The carousel for newly released publications will display the 20 most recently added titles. The most consulted titles will appear on subject-specific pages.
New subject-specific pages will allow for a smooth browsing experience and encourage the discovery of new publications:

Users can now notify their librarians if they are interested in a particular publication:
