Several popular features in Bloom’s Literature have just been enhanced, with a new look and new functionality that make the award-winning database even easier and more intuitive to use.
“Most Studied” Pages for All Indexes, Including Full-Text Poems Index, Plus “Quick Find” Search
The “Most Studied Authors,” “Most Studied Characters,” and “Most Studied Works” in the Author, Character, and Work indexes are now front and center and feature colorful images and illustrations. In addition, Bloom’s index of full-text poems now features a “Most Studied Poems” tab, allowing users quick access to the poems most likely to appear in their assignments and projects.
Browsers can still find complete lists of all items in each index by clicking on “All Authors” in the Author index, “All Characters” in the Character index, “All Works” in the Work index, and “All Poems” on the “Poems (Full Text)” page. In addition, each index now features a “Quick Find” search box to make it even easier for users to find content on the items they’re looking for.
Updated “How to Write About” and New “Discussion Questions” Pages
The How to Write About page now features a grid of Author images that each link to a How to Write About page for an author. Also, the Discussion Questions page lists authors alphabetically and now links to new Author pages that include a right rail containing a link to the Author Overview, biographical information on the author, and an image where available.
Enhanced “Literary Movements” and “Literary Themes” Pages
The Literary Movements and Literary Themes pages, accessible via the drop-down menu at the top or under “Browse Resources” on the home page, now have a featured topic that rotates through a list of five editor-chosen topics at the top of each page, presenting the best curated content right up front.
