British Standards On line User Group news

The Jibs British Standards On line enhancement group has met again with BSI. BSI have been doing further work with their suppliers on the new search engine and interface. Many of the suggestions made at the previous meeting have been adopted and more Will be adopted in future releases. There will be a full Boolean search alternative in the new interface and the layout of the screens has been considerably improved. BSI are hoping to go live with the new service over the weekend of the 4 November for the University sector. They are aware that this is mid term but this should be such a massive improvement and is worth the pain of a mid term change. There should be screenshots and a demo of the new software available from the old site before the change over and the URL of the new site will also be made available before the switch. The migration to the new system will be a "hard" migration and the interface s will not run in parallel.
