We have obtained permission from publishers to display a thumbnail of books written by LiU authors. Using this we highlight a recent book and a recent Ph.D. thesis on our front page. The display changes every hour.
We are exploring ways to improve the “browsability” of our content. We are currently testing a Book/Thesis browsing feature, which aims to be analogous with browsing a book shelf at a bookstore or library. At http://www.ep.liu.se/BookBrowser/Default.aspx one can search LiU’s books and theses using free-text searching and one gets a “bookshelf” of thumbnails of the covers of relevant publications. One can search for authors, departments or free-text words. Some covers are missing and are replaced by a dummy image.
