The Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) will unveil a new, dynamic portal through its website: www.librarieshawaii.org on Wednesday, February 15.  The SirsiDynix Enterprise portal will provide patrons with a powerful search engine that simultaneously explores HSPLS holdings, OverDrive ebook and digital audio books and music holdings, newspaper index entries, and subscription online databases.

The new portal showcases several technological enhancements that HSPLS patrons will enjoy.  Enterprise incorporates “fuzzy logic,” a feature that corrects errors such as misspellings and typos, and yields search results every time.  Additionally, the Enterprise portal is mobile-friendly, adjusting to allow the website to be viewed and used by mobile browsers.
