The Texas State Library and Archives Commission is pleased to announce a White Paper on Discovery Services

Implementing a discovery service can be both challenging and rewarding. The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) contracted with Amigos Library Services to write a white paper to provide basic information concerning discovery services, as well as an overview of the major discovery vendors. For an overview of what is covered, see the executive summary<https://www.tsl.texas.gov/sites/default/files/public/tslac/lot/TSLAC_WP_discovery__final_executive-summary.pdf>. For full content, including vendor information, “What to Look for in a Discovery Service Checklist,” and “Evaluating Your Discovery Service Checklist,” see the full report<https://www.tsl.texas.gov/sites/default/files/public/tslac/lot/TSLAC_WP_discovery__final_TSLAC_20140912.pdf>.

This white paper will be useful to libraries and consortia that are exploring discovery alternatives as well as to those that have adopted a discovery service and are ready to implement evaluation practices and procedures.
