S68 - Discovery: Beyond Initial Implementation & Participation…and into OPTIMIZATION
Join a scholarly publisher, a discovery service provider, and a university as they uncover, address and provide examples of how collaboration across the groups can have a major impact on the discovery user experience, and ultimately the usage and value of library resources.
