  • Evaluation Matrix
  • Discovery environment results
    Major vendors all doing something, but no company or product was doing what we wanted or needed
    Still opportunity for entrepreneurship
    Choose ‘best of breed’ to build integrated system
    Leverage what librarians do best – store, organize, retrieve, display information
  • Vendor Scan
  • Results
    Joined in beta program for SerSol Summon
    • Provided us with licensed content options
    • Eliminated Federated Search
    Purchased Primo from Ex Libris
    • Provided us with robust options for interface design
    • Provide partnership to explore other programmatic elements
  • Implementation
    • Provided content streams (catalog, digital library) to both partners
    • Eventually content will be ingested by Summon
    • Primo will be overlaid for the interface and advanced information management features
    • Released Summon in beta form to students at start of Fall semester
    • Planned release of Primo overlay as our Discovery 2.0 upgrade for Spring semester
