New Digital Collection of Forest Service Documents

25 August 2006 by Barry Brown

We’re pleased to announce a new digital collection at the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library: The US Forest Service Research Legacy Documents. From the collection description:

The US Forest Service Research Legacy Documents at the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library is a digitized selection of publications by research and development scientists of the US Forest Service under the research station names of the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, the Intermountain Research Station, the Northern Rocky Mountain Forest Range Experiment Station, and the Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. These full-text peer-reviewed works cover topics ranging from wilderness, wildlife, the environment, recreation, and more.

The goal of this project is to digitize legacy Forest Service research relevant to the Montana community. These works will be submitted to the USDA Forest Service’s TreeSearch Database, as well as the Registry of U.S. Government Publication Digitization Projects.

    Bonnie,
    Thanks for the feedback. We’ve added an “Advanced Search” feature to the collection. Now, if you click on advanced search, you will have the option to search against any field, including the Creator field. Please keep in mind that you’ll first have to select the specific collection “UM-U.S. Forest Service Research Legacy Documents” and add it to the selected collections, in order to search just that collection. Please let me know if you run into any problems.
    thx!

    Well, it seems to work but I think it is pretty obtuse and unfriendly. On the basic search screen there are options “Search all words” and “Search any words”, and on the Advanced screen (really user unfriendly, the way you have to select a database when you thought you were already there) there appear the same options in slightly different wording “All of the words” and “Any of the words”. On the Advanced screen, if you pay attention, you can see that you are indeed searching “across all fields”. But there is nothing on the basic screen that tells you you are NOT doing that, so if you are not “in the know” you’d have no idea why you should go to the advanced search, and once you get there why/how it is different from the basic. To some extent I’m tempted to say, why even have the basic search page …. except for the need on the advanced paged to re-specify the database you want … which might be ok if the page had better explanation on it
