Is Your Discovery Tool REALLY Better than Google?

With the advent of Google-like searching, academic libraries across the country have been compelled to create one-search options that return locally owned physical items, full-text materials, and Open Access scholarly content. Whether your library has already implemented one-search software or is just beginning the conversation, this session will give you tools and knowledge to assess the functionality and usefulness of your systems. You will begin to answer questions such as: What is your discovery tool really finding? How can you be sure? Presenters for this session will base examples on their experiences with ProQuest’s Summon (with the MnPALS API) and WorldCat Discovery. Their experiences also include configuring and using behind-the-scenes tools such as SFX, ProQuest 360 Linker, and the WorldCat Knowledgebase.
