New Interface to Select Sources in GLOBE

Published on 2015/07/17, by in Uncategorized.

GLOBE now includes many different sources for cases, from Academic (e.g. journal articles), to Reports and other documents (e.g. World Bank Reports), to Research Sites and Datasets (e.g. IFRI sites).  To make it easier to select which sources are included in your work, we have implemented a new interface (source type filters) within the case search function. Now you can easily filter case search results into three source types: Academic Sources, Reports and Documents, and Sites and Data. These filters make it easier than ever to quickly search for cases most relevant to you.

The new Source Type filter buttons are found in the lefthand column of the Case Search view in GLOBE (pictured above). The source type of a case is now also indicated by a colored icon alongside the case scores.
