Feedback Workflow

Feedback is gathered in a variety of ways:

OneSearch feedback form, OneSearch Broken Link form, Meetings, Presentations, Teams, and Emails. Feedback gathered is recorded for OneSearch in Feedback and Reports. A Response bank and complaints database has been provided by Communications.

OneSearch Feedback Form Process:

Email Patron to thank/ask for further clarification. If enhancement/bug not already reported, report to EBSCOConnect and record on GitHub. Record and Code in Feedback Form. Once every one or two months go into Qualtrics and copy/paste full values into MODS spreadsheet. Use FOLIO spreadsheet (automatically gets the values from MODS, minus identifying information) to write a report and send to Stakeholders.

VuFind Feedback Process:

In VuFind Set up folder. Currently recording Missing MARC, By Subject Review List, VuFind Configuration Librarian UX test notes, Branding Review. Record enhancement/bug on Google Sheets.

How is relevance ranking determined in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS)?

Local Documentation:

  • We default our relevancy ranking to Search Mode Find all my search terms. We have not set up Precision Operator or Distance.
  • In the New EDS UI we cannot change Search Mode to SmartText, boolean, or any.
  • We have added an extra weight to records from the catalog and from A-Z Databases.
