  • By now many of you have seen our announcement for Summon 2.0 and we’re going to share some details with you today about the exciting enhancements that will be coming soon to the Summon service. But, before we get into talking about specific features and functionality and where we’re going with the Summon service in the future, it is important that we share with you a little about our goals for the Summon service, the impact it’s having on libraries to today and why we keep innovative the service at a rate that far out-paces anything else competitors in the discovery space might be doing. With Summon we truly believe we are partnering with libraries to make the research process faster, easier and better while giving libraries new opportunities to promote their value.
  • Also supports goals of publishers.
  • As these findings from various studies show, electronic collections and e-books are a critical part of a libraries collection. And in order for libraries to realize the return on investment in their e-book collections, it’s important for users to be able to easily discover their library’s e-books.
  • Another ecosystem – all the work we need to do to make books discoverable complements all the work they do
  • Match and merge adds value… making it able to realize discovery of print materials through full text searching.
  • Research shows us that students prefer e-books to print materials… so it is clear it’s important for libraries to not only invest in their e-book collections, but it making certain those e-books are easily discoverable and accessible.
  • The ecosystem… the landscape in which we operate is complicated.
  • Evolving management solutionsDiscovery innovationsIncreased efficiency

  • E-BOOK DISCOVERY AND REQUIREMENTS FOR METADATA NISO/BISG 7TH ANNUAL FORUM John Law, Vice President of Discovery Services
  • Web-scale Discovery Service
  • Supporting the library’s mission Library Mission Enhanced Metadata Better Discovery Increased Usage
  • User and library collection trends More than 50% of library’s collections are electronic (OCLC) 95% of libraries carrying e- books (LJ Survey) More than 47%of respondents aren’t using e- books because they don’t know where to find them (ebrary’s 2011 Global Student E-book Survey)
  • Broad Content Coverage Features to Meet User expectations Relevance Accurate Metadata Match and Merge Full-Text Search Direct Linking Opportunities to optimize e-book discovery
  • Increasing discovery of books through full-text search …and others ABC-Clio Alexander Street Press Books24x7 Elsevier McGraw-Hill Oxford University Press Safari Sage Springer Many more…
  • Unified Knowledgebase Discovery & Access Management & Assessment Metadata MetadataMetadata Admin interface for indicating/selecting holdings from knowledgebase Discovery Unified Index Content ContentContent The landscape
  • Drivers for better e-book discovery • Collections are volatile – Literally 100s of changes per month – Libraries need efficient updates to manage library specific holdings • Acquisition models are changing – E-book collection sizes are growing – Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) • New data elements to manage – License Data – Trial Feedback – Status Changes from PDA • Disconnected management and discovery – Duplication of data entry – Endless batch loading of records – Locally deployed systems
  • MARC record creation Catalog loading Delayed discovery
  • Pain of PDA
  • LIBIFIC
  • New opportunities to improve discovery of e-books • Fully automated process for activation in discovery service – Accurate, timely title lists from suppliers – Direct feeds from supplier of your Selection Pool – Title matching regardless of ISBN – Automated status change on purchase
  • What benefits can libraries realize? • Reduced manual effort – No manual creation of title lists and providers – No title by title entry of e-books – No loading / unloading of bibliographic records – No complicated spreadsheets – Streamlines staff communication • Makes e-books discoverable, fast – Up to date matching of Selection Pool – Timely access in discovery service
  • imagine… What else could you be doing instead of managing holdings information?
