Breaking Down the Silos:Planning for Discovery Tools for Library 2.0
an ALCTS Symposium at ALA Midwinter 2009, Denver, Colorado
Your patrons want an integrated, intuitive, interactive discovery experience. You want to optimize resource discovery for them. Much of our information resides in separate silos and many companies offer products that deliver an integrated experience. How can libraries evaluate the options: next generation catalog interfaces, federated search engines, link resolvers? How do they get the best fit?
