Abstract

Evaluating zero search results and identifying ways to improve the searches can vastly improve patron results. The University of Oklahoma, Tulsa Campus Library and the University of Central Oklahoma Library collaborated to evaluate zero search results and identify improved search strategies. Based on findings they have created a JavaScript for use with the Primo search box that modifies searches. One example is changing the search from http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.anorl.2016.05.006 (0 searches) to 10.1016/j.anorl.2016.05.006 (1 exact result). This presentation will cover our strategies for zero search result evaluation as well as the JavaScript used to modify the primo search box.
