C4: Managing Discovery and Linking Services

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There is a growing trend towards a consolidation of services for Electronic Resource Management (ERM), A-Z journal listings, full text link resolving and discovery services under a single service provider. In many cases, the adoption of a discovery service from a provider that is not the same as the libraries' existing link resolver service means managing multiple knowledgebases. In this session, 3 libraries will provide an overview of their experience and strategies for maintaining separate link resolving and discovery services in lieu of adopting a full suite of services from a single service provider. Each speaker will provide a case study on the advantages and/or challenges of managing their chosen discovery service, EBSCO's EDS, Ex Libris' Primo and ProQuest's Summon, in conjunction with the CUFTS/GODOT open source knowledgebase/link resolver.
