Our New Search Platform by the Numbers

In July, the Libraries completed a major project to replace the system that supports our website and implement a new user interface for searching, browsing, and using collections. Search Our Collections, guided by our vision for a digital-first library, aims to provide the MIT community with a more seamless experience navigating our rich resources online.
