ORSLA Professional Development Committee is proud to present the 2nd Annual "Web Resources & Emerging Technology" Professional Development Event featuring the following presentations:
Discovery Interfaces: If all the big kids are doing it, why can't I?
Presenter: Jonathan Jacobsen, Andornot Consulting

Discovery interfaces are one of the hottest trends in the library Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) sphere. A discovery interface provides a more intuitive and productive experience for users, whether searching a library catalogue, an article index, or any other data source. It sits on top of any existing database or integrated library system, ingesting records in many formats, and providing a web-based search interface for end users.
While many public and academic libraries have implemented pricey systems such as BiblioCommons, AquaBrowser and Summon in recent years, smaller, specialized libraries have not. We believe there is significant value in discovery systems for all libraries and intend for this presentation to elucidate special librarians as to why.
