Project Euclid Launches Site Redesign
Project Euclid is pleased to announce the launch of a fully redesigned platform at projecteuclid.org. A joint partnership of Cornell University Library and Duke University Press, Project Euclid is an online platform that hosts high-quality mathematics and statistics content.
Its new website is uniquely designed to meet the research needs of mathematicians and statisticians, and it combines rich functionality with a beautiful, easy-to-use interface. New features include improved searching, citation exports, publisher landing pages, mobile optimization, print-on-demand purchasing, customized e-mail alerts, and access indicators for all content.
“We wanted to create a more engaging and robust user experience without losing the clean aesthetic and straightforward usability Project Euclid is known for,” says Steve Cohn, director of Duke University Press. “We are absolutely delighted by the results and pleased at how well Cornell University Library and Duke University Press worked together to redesign and further improve Project Euclid.”
The new site implements a powerful new faceted search tool that allows users to navigate over 1.7 million pages of scholarship more efficiently. By applying filters to search results, users can progressively refine their searches, focusing on the content most related to their subject areas. Additionally, users can sign up to receive e-mail alerts when new scholarship is published in their areas of interest.
“It has been especially rewarding to see how recent library research into the search and discovery experience has contributed to the new Project Euclid website,” says Anne R. Kenney, Cornell’s Carl A. Kroch University Librarian. “The new platform is a wonderful example of libraries and publishers leveraging their respective strengths to build effective tools for scholars.”
The Project Euclid redesign meets the changing needs of researchers, who now confront an overload of content on multiple devices. The new site makes it easier to find and access high-quality, curated scholarship, and its responsive design optimizes the site for working and reading on mobile devices. Symbols and formulas are rendered beautifully with the MathJax display engine, and users can quickly and easily export or download citations to e-mail or reference management systems.
