Discovery Systems in 2020: Issues and Trends

Feedback form is now closed.
Library discovery and content delivery systems continue to evolve. While there has been a consolidation of systems in the web-scale discovery vendor market, a number of academic libraries have explored various mechanisms to enhance discovery. Many of these systems center around the bento-style discovery approach in which search results are partitioned into separate screen result zones (bento boxes) with retrieved content grouped by format or service type. The bento approach, presently adopted by some 42 libraries, is designed to address identified problems with web-scale systems and better meet user needs by optimizing known-item searching, streamlining full-text access, and providing local services, content, and subject specialist referrals. This panel will discuss current trends and issues in discovery systems, including a description of value-added full-text linking features, user behaviors and needs identified by transaction log analysis, the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies in discovery, and plans by the Big Ten Academic Alliance for a collective collection system. The recent OhioLINK/Ithaka white paper on user-centered library systems and the concept of “full library discovery” will also be discussed.
