It’s a snow day in here in Frankfort, but we were too excited about our big news to stay home. Our EBSCO Discovery Search has been up since the end of January, in a soft launch mode while we worked out any glitches. The official release has happened and we’re also pleased to announce our NAME THE SEARCH contest. We are having a contest to give students, kids, parents, librarians, any Kentuckian, the opportunity to dream up the moniker for our new search. Maybe it’s an acronym, or a nifty play on words, or maybe it’s something short and to the point. Who knows?
Contest details and the entry form at located at http://www.kyvl.org/NametheSearchContest.shtm. Entries will be accepted through the end of March. KYVL will be giving away new devices provided by sponsors, including an iPad2, to highlight mobile access of the new service. We’ve got an iPad2 from EBSCO. A Google Nexus 7 from EQUELLA. And a nifty CODi vertical messenger laptop/tablet bag from Pomeroy. So far. We are still collecting prizes so there may be more to come.
Check out the search. Submit a name. You could be famous.
(P.S. Don’t forget to get out there and build a snow person before it all melts away.)
