Abstract: Marshall Breeding will provide an overview of discovery interfaces, a new type of product that enhances the user experience in search and access to library resources. He will give an introduction to the products, sharing why they are needed and how they differ from--and often improve upon traditional online catalog modules or federated search technologies. The presentation will outline some of the features and how they better meet the expectations of today’s library patrons. Breeding describe how discovery interfaces integrate with ILSs and other components of a library's technical infrastructure.
