Important Notices

InfoHawk+

As you come across searches or questions that do not yield “good” results please fill out the form below. Please be as detailed as possible so that we can recreate the search and investigate why it did not work, and hopefully recommend different search strategies based on optimal Primo search methods. We hope to be able to demonstrate these and generate discussion that will aid you in teaching patrons of all types to use InfoHawk+ effectively. We’ll spend the next few weeks gathering data and then create a session later in the semester. You can also report IH+ search challenges to Ericka at: ericka-raber@uiowa.edu

IH Search Examples

Please refer complaints/issues with the technology side of Infohawk+ to LIT/Brian Thompson.

Other complaints/issues will be sent to the appropriate Library Liaison. If there is no assigned Liaison send referral to Kathy Magarrell at 5-5093. If Kathy is not available give user Kathy's business card.
