Muse Knowledge Application 6.0 is here

Muse Knowledge Application 6.0 is our latest web interface that replaces the older and well known MuseSearch Application series, used for more than a decade to search thousands of e-resources on the Internet.  

 

Built on a whole new concept with a brand new look, the new interface keeps all the traditional features of MuseSearch plus a long list of new ones. The Muse Core API was extended and lightened to deliver a faster and more responsive web interface and is now a Single Page Application that uses the latest web technologies like AngularJS, Boostrap, and Font Awesome.  This delivers a thoroughly updated and more responsive user experience.  

 

The new MuseKnowledge™ Application is suitable to be used for any device, phone, tablet or PC. It is integration-ready, and playing it inside a parent site is now easier, be it a simple container or a more complex one like a Liferay Portal. It is embedded in both iOS and Android native code, allowing users ultimate flexibility to access more MuseKnowledge™ Applications from their mobile devices.  

 

Last but not least, the Muse Console for Application Administration has many improvements in sync with the new MuseKnowledge(TM) features and makes administering any older MuseSearch Applications much easier.  

 

As usual we offer a Free 30 Day Trial period to fully evaluate the new version of the Muse Knowledge Application.  You can request a Trial License Key by filling in the request form here.

Library and Information Resources Network

LIRN, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, provides affordable access to online resources to support licensing and accreditation requirements for 300 colleges and universities in 42 US states and 7 countries.

 

With the LIRN Core Collections, students have access to millions of peer-reviewed and full-text journals, magazines, and newspaper articles, e-books, podcasts, audio, and video resources to support their academic studies, including resources from leading academic publishers, and covering topics for general education, business, medical programs, and more.

 

LIRNPortal®, built on Muse Knowledge Proxy, provides member institutions with easy-to-use and intuitive access to their subscription resources. Operated as a managed service, the portal can integrate with an institution’s existing user authentication systems. LIRNPortal is included with LIRN membership, ensuring institutions of all sizes can offer seamless access for students, faculty and staff from both on and off-campus.

 

The LIRNSearch®, powerd by Muse Knowledge Search, is fully integrated into the portal, allowing users to easily and securely search across subscription resources simultaneously and in real time.

 

Kentucky Community and Technical System

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), a statewide postsecondary education institution with 16 colleges across 70 campuses, use Muse Proxy to enable remote off-campus access for students, faculty and staff to more than 20 premium electronic research resources, via the KTCTS student portals and library discovery and delivery systems.

 

The KCTCS Muse Proxy solution is a shared enterprise technology running on multiple IPs, with each of the 16 colleges having their own dedicated IP.  The end-user authentication is SAML based, using the existing KCTCS Microsoft Azure Active Directory setup.

 

Successfully implemented as a "multi-tenant" environment, the KCTCS Muse Proxy deployment leverages the existing infrastructure and people resources to deliver a unified user experience across the 16 college libraries, for high availability of resources and reduced risk of network intrusion.

Egyptian Knowledge Bank

Under the directive of the Presidential Specialized Council for Education and Scientific Research, a direct initiative of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian Knowledge Bank initiative, launched in January 2016, is helping build a “a society that learns, thinks and innovates”. The world’s largest digital library, the Egyptian Knowledge Bank brings students, researchers, educators and the general public access to leading education and scientific publications free of charge.  In this nationwide project, Muse Knowledge Search, Hybrid and Proxy solutions are used to power and provide secure access to content from leading publishing houses such as Springer Nature, National Geographic, Discovery, Elsevier, Cambridge, Oxford, Reuters, Britannica, and more.

 

The first initiative of its kind, the Egyptian Knowledge Bank serves Egyptian citizens of all cultures and ages, ensuring each sector receives tailored content and services according to their interests and needs.

 

In its first 10 months, 69 million searches were conducted and 32 million materials downloaded.

 

The Muse Knowledge implementation for the Egyptian Knowledge Bank comprises 140 Academic Institutions and 373 Government Institutions, including 250 Medical Hospitals.

Library and Information Resources Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation formed in 1996, is a consortium of educational institutions that have joined together to share access to information resources. LIRN® members enjoy the benefits of group purchasing, a centrally managed authentication gateway, on and off campus access for their students, as well as hosted proxy services, a powerful federated search solution, and our new consortium librarian service. The LIRN® collection provides students with millions of peer-reviewed and full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, e-books, podcasts, audio, and video resources to support their academic studies from ProQuest, Gale Cengage, EBSCO, eLibrary, Books24x7, and more, covering topics for General Education, Business, and Medical programs.
