Take-Aways From The Digital Einstein Papers Project - a Tizra Webinar


Learn How Princeton University Press + Tizra Collaborated to Create a Revolutionary, Researcher-Friendly UI For Complex Online Publications! 

Join us Friday, December 15 at 1pm ET for a quick, behind-the-scenes webinar tour of Tizra's new search technology developed for the Digital Einstein Papers and learn... 

  • How hybrid search technology helps users find relevant content faster. 
  • Deep search tools that uncover the value within large, complex publications. 
  • How to manage the metadata within your publications. 

This webcast focuses on THE DIGITAL EINSTEIN PAPERS – a collaborative project powered by the Tizra platform that enables readers to experience the writings of Albert Einstein in unprecedented ways. 

A newly developed search tool improves discoverability by allowing users to perform hybrid searches of full-text and structured metadata across volumes containing thousands of articles, letters, lectures and other writings, with easy navigation between original German texts and English translations, as well as extensive explanatory footnotes, introductory essays, and links to the Einstein Archives Online, where there are thousands of high-quality digital images of Einstein’s writings.

What Einstein Taught Us About Searching Inside Publications

When the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein went live on Tizra a few years ago, it was a huge step forward. Suddenly, anyone anywhere could search and access the output of one of the 20th Century’s great minds…from love letters to breakthrough articles that changed how we think about the nature of time and space. But the project also showed the limits of traditional tools for searching within large, complex publications. These limits sparked a collaboration with Princeton University Press and Einstein Papers Project editors, which this year resulted in a dynamic new search interface, which we’ll be demonstrating in a Webcast Friday, December 15 at 1pm ET. The interface not only makes it easier for Einstein researchers to home in on relevant content on both mobile devices and desktops, it points the way toward faster, better searching within a wide range of publication types, from reference books to periodicals, technical documentation and standards to textbooks.

New Mobile-Optimized Template Simplifies Site Design

Pre-designed templates are increasingly popular as a quick way to get new Tizra sites launched, or to refresh the design of an existing site.  A key driver in both cases is keeping up with increasingly high user expectations for ease of use and visual appeal, particularly on mobile devices. To address these needs, we’ve released a major upgrade to our Bootstrap-based responsive design template. The new version makes it much easier to customize with your own colors and logo, improves mobile interaction with the latest version of the Bootstrap framework, and adds numerous other visual and usability refinements.

Existing Tizra customers can try it out now by selecting the “Bootstrap Responsive Template” in the PRESENTATION area. Or if you’d like to see a quick preview, take a look at this demo site… https://abedemo.tizrapublisher.com
