The Changing Discovery Landscape - Part 1 heard from respected speakers representing researchers and librarians from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Rutgers University Libraries.  The webinar was very well received with dynamic discussions, which also sparked a feature article from Paul Kudlow, CEO and Co-Founder of TrendMD on their popular TrendMD Blog, as well as referenced in The Scholarly Kitchen’s “Guest Post: Do Journal Article Recommendation Features Change Reader Behavior?” Creating enhanced tools and services can be very expensive and requires a large amount of resources. Who will answer the call?

Enter, The Changing Discovery Landscape-Part 2, where we will hear from service providers—two vendors and a publisher—who will give their perspectives on the search and discovery landscape, and who have developed products, tools, and services that are specifically designed to ease the problems and clear the hurdles addressed by researchers and librarians in The Changing Discovery Landscape – Part 1.

Part 2—Vendor and Publisher Perspectives:
This session will give an overview of the discovery landscape, discuss the different kinds of discovery products, tools, and services, and note the benefits.

Matthew Ragucci, Library Solutions Architect at Wiley will discuss the various methods in which the publisher is committed to enhancing discoverability of its content.  This will cover the operational aspects of Wiley’s data sharing workflows and the perceived impact on libraries and their users. A special emphasis will be placed on the strategic partnerships with library solutions providers Wiley has developed and maintains in order to ensure robust product-level metadata is effectively distributed to optimize content discovery.

Heidi Becker, Product Specialist at Digital Science will discuss Dimensions, a new linked database containing over 95 million publications, 4 million awarded grants, 35 million patent records, and 400,000 clinical trials.  Dimensions provides users with an expanded view of the entire life-cycle of research - from the time funds are awarded, through publication and including downstream evidence of impact. Our aim is to enhance and supplement the traditional citation rubric and encourage exploration: via attention to research online, in policy documents, resulting clinical trials, and as evidenced in commercialization via patents worldwide.

Kent Anderson, CEO, RedLink will discuss community-development theory and practice, and how deploying a community layer designed specifically to support scholarly publishing roles and use-cases has led to a recommendation approach informed by multiple points of interest, including connections and relevance, that has increased engagement and discovery across multiple publishers.
