The "single search box" approach of web search engines like Google and Bing
have forced libraries and system developers to rethink their whole approach
to end-user searching for library and publisher resources and electronic
content. Discovery systems are continuing to evolve from simple keyword

discovery, and beyond. Because discovery of content is such a critical
component of library services, understanding in what potential ways these
systems will develop is critical for library staff, either when selecting a
system or in seeking ways to improve the services. 

This webinar will cover some of the latest developments of library discovery
systems as well as discuss the findings of the NISO research study, launched
in early 2014 on the status of discovery systems, their potential future
development directions, and the systems interoperability needs of these
