Visual Searching and The Commons Project on Flickr

Two new Visual Search options in the EBSCOhost interface offer visual learners graphical approaches to information discovery, displaying results in colorful blocks and in rows or columns. Go to Academic Search Premier (EBSCO) on our Find It! page and select Visual Search to use this graphical feature. It’s neat! *** AND in OTHER news, check out The Commons to see how the Library of Congress and Flickr have teamed up to broaden public access to the 14 million photographs and other visual items in LC’s collections. These types of visual and information literacy tips are available on the IL Faculty Toolkit.
