Dear Colleagues,


Below is a press release about a new A-Z public search interface for Gold Rush. The documentation for this new interface is attached to this email along with a Word version of this press release. The new interface will not be automatically activated for you unless you activate it yourself in the Gold Rush Staff Toolbox. Instructions for doing this can be found in the attached documentation. Shortly we will be announcing some Webinars for those who would like an online tour of both the A-Z interface as well as new settings on the staff side.






For Immediate Release: Denver, CO. January 13, 2011

Some of the features of the new A-Z interface include:


The new Interface may be toggled on in the Gold Rush Staff Toolbox by going to: Settings Manage Preferences Main Search/Browse Results Display to “New.” Libraries can activate the new interface at their convenience.
