Important functional improvements were recently made on the Research4Life Content Portals including a new function allowing the ability to search journals and books by title. This new enhancement will make it easier for users to navigate through the vast amount of journals and books available in the Content Portals.
The new improvements also corrected bugs, translation errors, incorrect external links and formatting issues all aimed at improving the overall user experience.
