Regular users of the key database Construction Information Service will notice major differences when they log in from the end of April 2012. The new CIS search engine provides:‐
- Improved accuracy of the search results returned ‐ saving you time
- Improvement in the speed at which results are returned to you
- Increased options available to find the relevant documents within the original search parameters set – a “search within a search” capability.
- Concurrent searching of the entire content of The Construction Information Service, NBS Building Regulations and IHS Specify‐it.
For more information on the improvements, click on the “We asked – you responded – we listened” link when you enter Construction Information Service. If you need any help navigating your way around the new-look database, please contact your subject librarians. Hopefully, the new search and results interface will make it easier to find the documents you need!
