Discovery Services for Libraries


Abstract: The realm of technologies helping libraries provide access to their collections and services through their web presence continues to evolve and innovate. Index-based, or “web-scale” discovery services have become a mainstay in academic libraries in helping their users find the materials they need among the vast resources available to them. Socially oriented discovery interfaces and portal products help public and other libraries bring together a variety of service and content offerings. Breeding gives an update on the realm of these public-facing technology products and services and takes a look into the trends going forward.
