Marvel A-Z for LibGuides
Does your library use LibGuides? Would you like to include Marvel's A-Z list as an added feature for your patrons? If so, an XML file of Marvel's databases has been created based on the vendor's requirements and made available to import into your existing LibGuide. The download zip file contains both the XML for the import process and the original Excel file if modification is needed. [download] Last update September 2015.

New Single Search Box for MARVEL
The Maine State Library and Maine InfoNet are happy to announce the official launch of a new Single-Search-Box interface for searching the resources of MARVEL!. This new search box, located at the top of the MARVEL! page searches content from across the breadth of the MARVEL! resources and presents them in a unified result list.
The underlying technology that provides this service is powered by the Ebsco Discovery Service (EDS) and is a completely different system than the one that ran the former OneSearch box.
New features include the ability to limit to selected databases and limit results through the use of facets. MaineCat results and Maine and National News results are now highlighted on the results page in their own 'widget' interface, rather than in the main article result pane.
We hope you find the system useful and a major improvement for our patrons.
