    • Search box on each page of the site, with predictive search terms.
    • New access icons to help users clearly identify content to which they have paid access through their institution, free sample content, and open access content.
    • Discovery and research tools at both the book and journal article level, including More by This Author and Related Content links, citation downloading/exporting, and social sharing.
    • "Search Inside..." feature for both books and journals.
