Remember when federated search was supposedly the next big thing? How did that go? And what’s the next big thing being offered? What tools and workflows do researchers/end-users find indispensable? How do discovery tools help end-users discover the content that suits their needs at different points in their academic careers, or in the research cycle? The first part of this two-part seminar on the changing discovery landscape is designed to address new developments in the tools available for librarians and researchers. For Part 2, which will be announced at a later date, we will hear from vendors and publishers who assist end-users by helping them find relevant content to enhance their discovery experience of published work. These four groups will share their perspectives, tools, and best-practice approaches for solving their content discovery issues.

Part I—Librarian and Researcher Perspectives:
This session will give an overview of the discovery landscape, discuss the different kinds of discovery services, and note the differences between them.

Joseph Deodato, Digital User Services Librarian, Rutgers University Libraries will discuss:

  • How libraries evaluate the landscape and choose a service
  • How libraries perceive the needs of their various customers


David M. McCandlish, Assistant Professor, Simons Center for Quantitative Biology, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory will discuss:

  • What discovery looks like for a researcher on a daily basis
  • Description of the user’s journey and what needs are met or unfulfilled
  • What are the pain points and what are the dream discovery tools and/or processes?
  • How do different points in a career path affect your discovery needs?
  • How do different points in the research cycle affect your discovery search criteria and expected results?
  • How do discovery experiences differ based on various institution types?
