Project Euclid is pleased to announce the launch of a fully redesigned
platform at A joint partnership of Cornell University
Library and Duke University Press, Project Euclid is an online platform
that hosts high-quality mathematics and statistics content.

Its new website is uniquely designed to meet the research needs of
mathematicians and statisticians, and it combines rich functionality
with a beautiful, easy-to-use interface. New features include improved
searching, citation exports, publisher landing pages, mobile
optimization, print-on-demand purchasing, customized e-mail alerts, and
access indicators for all content.

“We wanted to create a more engaging and robust user experience without
losing the clean aesthetic and straightforward usability Project Euclid
is known for,” says Steve Cohn, director of Duke University Press. “We
are absolutely delighted by the results and pleased at how well Cornell
University Library and Duke University Press worked together to redesign
and further improve Project Euclid.”

The new site implements a powerful new faceted search tool that allows
users to navigate over 1.7 million pages of scholarship more
efficiently. By applying filters to search results, users can
progressively refine their searches, focusing on the content most
related to their subject areas. Additionally, users can sign up to
receive e-mail alerts when new scholarship is published in their areas
of interest.

“It has been especially rewarding to see how recent library research
into the search and discovery experience has contributed to the new
Project Euclid website,” says Anne R. Kenney, Cornell’s Carl A. Kroch
University Librarian. “The new platform is a wonderful example of
libraries and publishers leveraging their respective strengths to build
effective tools for scholars.”

The Project Euclid redesign meets the changing needs of researchers, who
now confront an overload of content on multiple devices. The new site
makes it easier to find and access high-quality, curated scholarship,
and its responsive design optimizes the site for working and reading on
mobile devices. Symbols and formulas are rendered beautifully with the
MathJax display engine, and users can quickly and easily export or
download citations to e-mail or reference management systems.
