Abstract

EEVL, the Edinburgh Engineering Virtual Library, consists of several distinct resources, which exist as separate databases. This article describes the approach taken to tackle a particular problem that was identified through evaluation studies, namely, that searches of the EEVL catalogue too frequently matched no records. The solution described in this paper is a cross‐search facility for three of the EEVL databases.
