WIDE DISTRIBUTION.  SENT ON BEHALF OF THE LIBRARY OF MICHIGAN AND THE 
MICHIGAN ELIBRARY.  PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE

Term clusters, or visual search results, allow users to discover the 
context of their search term and uncover hidden connections.  Many people 
are visual learners, and this new feature will be an added way for them to 
grasp how their search relates to larger or narrower topics or how it 
relates to other subjects.  From students to adults, this will be a 
helpful feature. 
The visual search (term clusters) is available in most of the InfoTrac 
databases and can be used in two ways.
1 - you can go directly to Term Clusters in the orange tabs on the top 
banner, then do your search.
2 - you can do your search, then find the link to "term clusters" in the 
left navigation pane.



Thanks,
Suzanne
