One Size Does Not Fit All: Tuning the Discovery Service to Meet Stakeholder Needs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

More often than not, a one-sized single solution does not fit. When implementing a discovery service, each institution has its own requirements and different types of users have different needs. In this session, the two universities will examine different configuration and customization options that are available to libraries when implementing a discovery service. Join Esther Onega, University of Virginia and Kristi Lobrano, Franklin University to discuss what libraries can do independently, and where vendor support comes in. Topics include branding, profile options, catalog and IR loading, linking, and website integration.
