Introducing LearningExpress Library Placards!

LEL placard

We are happy to announce the release of LearningExpress Library placards to GALILEO community groups who have access to LearningExpress Library (currently, public libraries and technical colleges). LearningExpress Library content has been discoverable in Discover GALILEO for a while; however, placards will bring LearningExpress Library content front and center for easier discoverability.

LearningExpress Library placards are setup in Discover GALILEO and will display automatically when a user searches for keywords which relate to LearningExpress Library. For example, if a user searches for “SAT exam” or “college admission,” the user will see a placard telling them that based on their search they might find the LearningExpress Library College Preparation Center helpful. The placard will provide a link directly to that particular center. Keywords have been setup for each of the nine LearningExpress Library centers:

If you have any questions regarding LearningExpress Library placards, please submit them through the GALILEO Contact Us form.
