Try the experimental discovery tool Yewno

University of Nottingham Libraries are trialling an experimental resource discovery tool Yewno. Read on to find out more about how to access it and get help using it in your research.  

Helping you find the resources you need is a core part of Libraries’ mission. We already provide NUsearch as a one-stop-shop for searching our collections and accessing online resources. But do you ever wish it did more to help you understand topics or explore connections between them? Or do you wish that your search results were better visualised? 

We are running a trial to Yewno, which adds a new, experimental dimension to search by using artificial intelligence to map links between concepts.

Its visual search interface illustrates the links between topics across all academic fields, drawing upon ideas from millions of scholarly articles, books, and databases. And we want you to tell us if it helps with your research in a way NUsearch doesn’t. 

Learn more and tell us what you think 

If you have further questions about Yewno, you can send them to digital-library-support@nottingham.ac.uk.
