New CanLII Search Interface to Launch September 17
"The main search interface has been simplified to one field, programmed to recognize and give good results for both simple keyword and complex Boolean searches; allowing researchers to engage with CanLII in the ways that best suits their needs. To support specialized search, such as by citation or title, or to note something up from the homepage, the simplified search box can be expanded with a click to reveal advanced search capabilities (...)"
"During each month of our testing period, between 5,000 and 10,000 unique visitors to the 'CanLII Bet' made between 10,000 and 21,000 visits and devoured a combined total of over a half-million pages of content. In addition, CanLII conducted direct user testing and solicited a great deal of feedback to ensure all concerns, large and small, were considered as we prepared for the leap from the 'CanLII classic' in place since 2007, to the new experience."So next week, the CanLI Beta test interface will replace the current one.
