Oasis should have the capability to download an entire search result.
Oasis should have the capability to download an entire search result. Currently, it appears a user can only add up to 200 records at a time to a list and then download the list. We should be able to download an entire search result without adding a small number to a list repeatedly.1 vote
Adding the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classification in the advanced search
Could you please add the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classification in the advanced search options? Since that classification is already in the records, it could be nice to see it in the classification drop down menu.2 votes
The NLM class "W" can now be accessed from the LC class schedule.
Fix the Search
The Quick Search should work as well as the Advanced Search, and both need better ranking of results so that the titles I expect to see are at the top of the page.24 votes
Organize items with separated headings for better readability
Instead of combining all the item information in one long line. Readability would improve by organizing and separating each component with a heading and/or its own line. For example:
The default number for copies to order should be one. No one ever orders 0 copies.
It's a waste of time changing the 0s to 1s.10 votes
Add Boolean language and truncation to search
All search boxes should support Boolean AND, OR, and NOT, as well as truncation. Currently there is no way to exclude words from a search, or combine synonyms or alternate forms of a word into a single search.6 votes
This was included as part of the new search interface--wherever editor information is available in the author metadata. We hope to expand it even further down the road.
