Search & Discovery


web-scale discovery, best practices

Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to understand a wide variety off discovery implementation choices, best practices, and lessons learned with several discovery systems.


Web-scale discovery systems promise to fulfill the dream that began with Z39.50 and federated search: one interface to instantly bring in all of the best content libraries have carefully cultivated, helping the user to transition from searching to exploring. In a Q&A with panelists from libraries using at least four different web-scale discovery systems, the session presents an opportunity to learn from your colleagues' experiences as they discuss implementation choices, best practices, and lessons learned with the systems.
