Virtual Shelf Browse is a hit?

With the semester starting back up here, we’re getting lots of positive feedback about the new Virtual Shelf Browse feature.

I don’t have usage statistics or anything at the moment, but it seems to be a hit, allowing people to do something like a physical browse of the shelves, from their device screen.

Positive feedback has come from underclassmen as well as professors. I am still assuming it is disciplinarily specific (some disciplines/departments simply don’t use monographs much), but appreciation and use does seem to cut across academic status/level.

Here’s an example of our Virtual Shelf Browse.

Here’s a blog post from last month where I discuss the feature in more detail.
