All New SearchWiSE



Version 2.0 is now live!

The new  SearchWiSE provides a familiar, easy to use interface that also optimizes academic research. SearchWiSE is powered by the ProQuest Serials Solution’s  product, Summon.

The new three-pane design should feel familiar to anyone who has used a major search engine lately.


  • Facets and filters in the left pane focus on  the results you need.
    • The new discipline Facet makes it easy to zoom in on discipline-specific content.
  •  Highly Relevant Results take center stage in the middle pane.
    • Content icons and flags make it easy to quickly see which resources are available online.
    • Infinite scroll makes it simple to drive down the page to see even more relevant results.
    • Image and newspaper content is packaged and  spotlighted within the results.
  • The brand new Topic Explorer pane, on the right, displays topical reference content, library generated research guides, and knowledgeable librarians.
    • Highlights relevant reference content from Britannica Online and other library references.
    • Retrieves the research guide relevant to your search (when available).
    • Connects you to the appropriate subject librarian.

Other Features Include:

  • The  new Automated Query Expansion™ feature generates additional keywords and spelling variations for common searches.
