Discussion Forum, Midwinter 2011
Discovery systems promise to simplify search by providing access to multiple resources through a single index and interface. This promise has numerous implications for library website design. If you’ve grappled with questions of how to integrate a discovery system (such as Summon, Encore, EBSCO Discovery Service, Primo, or Primo Central) into your library’s website, wondered about pitfalls in that process, or find yourself curious about what may be the next new design standard for information discovery and delivery, join us at Midwinter for an exciting and informative discussion forum.
