W14 – Library Resource Discovery: Strategies, Interfaces, & Options
Sunday, April 6, 2014
1:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Libraries face daunting challenges in providing access to library resources in ways that both meet the expectations of library users and librarians. Library users today expect simple, powerful, and intuitive interfaces that provide instant access to information resources. Librarians advocate for precise as well as general search capabilities, to optimally expose users to print as well as electronic resources, to take full advantage of the investments made in all categories of library materials, and to operate objectively without bias to any given publisher’s content. This half-day workshop explores the realm of library resource discovery services, helping attendees develop or refine strategies that can be applied in libraries as they evaluate, select, and implement these products.
