Discovery Easy, Delivery Critical

Tuesday, December 9th at 2:00 pm ET/ 11:00 am PT

Discovery services for libraries, whether vendor supplied or free tools such as Google Scholar, have proliferated. Users can easily get millions of results returned from a single search with little effort, but what has been done to improve linking to content once discovered?

Join us for a webinar panel discussion in partnership with ProQuest, featuring librarians discussing how linking is really the most critical aspect of the discovery process for libraries, and how it is often the most overlooked or taken for granted. In an era where discovery of content is relatively easy, libraries need to be aware that linking—the process of fulfillment and delivery of desired content—is still difficult. When links fail, users think the library has failed and go elsewhere.
