  • I own the full text content, so I’m alright thank you!

  • www.sic.ox14.com  Most users still arrive at a publisher’s web site from another web site or a link in an email (or RSS) and not from navigating their way around the publisher’s site.  There are lots of places to start the navigation, but in aggregate, the library web sites seem to account for a lot of the traffic 30 July, 2013 4
  • www.sic.ox14.com Unique Role of Library Web Pages  The only starting point with knowledge (across multiple publisher sites) of what the user is licensed to read  Technologies heavily integrated with other starting points too  Individually, libraries make up a tiny proportion of referrals to publisher web sites, but in aggregate they are very significant indeed 30 July, 2013 5

  • www.sic.ox14.com Web Scale Discovery for Primary Publishers  Enhances discoverability of publisher content – Users are linked out to full text on publisher web site  Diminishes the case for the publisher web site as a starting point 30 July, 2013 9
  • www.sic.ox14.com Web Scale Discovery for A&I Publishers  Since discovery products only index the subscribed content, this must reinforce the value of the data in the index, and perhaps help guarantee the viability of the index itself  Loss of brand – only the data, and not the starting point itself, will be seen. – Users link out from discovery product to full text – Users get only a subset of the functionality of specialist search 30 July, 2013 10
  • www.sic.ox14.com Web Scale Discovery for the Library  Potentially a very powerful tool that helps cement the library’s role in information discovery  Still lots of competition! 30 July, 2013 11
