December GALILEO Update: Bento Search Becomes the Default

Bento boxes are here to stay!

Beginning Dec. 20, the bento box functionality becomes the default search mode for all GALILEO users. (If you want to return to the classic view, you still can.)

Other features you can expect to see:

  • Bento customization for libraries at the GALILEO admin level
  • Improvements and additions to bento box content (We’ve added New Georgia Encyclopedia, for example.)
  • Improved relevance ranking when browsing by subject or type
  • New and improved publication finder

GALILEO support staff will host two upcoming sessions to review updates over the past several months, as well as larger changes coming this December. Register here.

  • Friday, Dec. 17, 2021, 1:00 PM
  • Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2021, 3:00 PM

The sessions will be recorded and available on the GALILEO YouTube channel. Other helpful videos on-demand, include:
