  • Students (and many faculty) want a Google/Google Scholar-like searchSilo problem – which database(s) should I use? Users recognize greater quality of library resources, but default to web search because of its ease
  • MS: user sends query to meta search engine, waits for results from each DB, Also can only get to content through databasesContent- MS limited to things you can connect to; PI limited to things you can ingestIndexing Quality Control – MS Map fields – PI make your ownFull text limits- MS esp. bad – return all results from those that don’t limit, etc
  • Content- MS limited to things you can connect to; PI limited to things you can ingestIndexing Quality Control – MS Map fields – PI make your ownFull text limits- MS esp. bad – return all results from those that don’t limit, etc
  • Index: Pre-Indexed content,Standardized acrosscontent types and providersRights: Based on knowledgbaseInterface: yet feature rich vs Google scholar
  • Better: Better quality, higher percent full text accessible, broader more focused search!
  • Plus University of Sydney and University of Liverpool have recently joined as beta partners.x

Transcript

  • 1. Innovation@ourLibrary: beta implementation of a unified web-scale discovery tool for library content
    Jason Price, PhD
    Head of Collections, Claremont Colleges Library
    Springer Library Advisory Board
    Nov. 14, 2009
  • 2. What we needed
    A one-stop shop for library-wide search (300 DBs)
    A comprehensive full text only search
    And it must be simple – easy – fast
  • 3.
  • 4. Pre-index vs. metasearch
    Metasearch
    Pre-index search
    Other primary content
    Primary content
    Content metadata & some full text fed to databases
    Master index
    DB1
    DB2
    OPAC
    DB3
    DigLib
    DB4
    Knowledgebase filter to
    locally- available content

  • 12. Challenges for Summon
    Relevance, Relevance, and Relevance
    Content breadth, depth and transparency
    Effect of combined full text & metadata indexing
    Relies on openUrl to access full text content
    Increasing discovery & use of local print resources(?)
  • 13. Potential impacts of Summon
    Libraries can potentially offer an effective (better?) alternative to Google Scholar
    Some A&I only databases may be superseded
    Based on cost, use & % of content indexed in Summon
    Replaces metasearch?
    But not (yet) able to address predefined subject subsets—does it need to?
    Knowledgebase accuracy becomes more important
    Summon does not provide direct full text links
    Accuracy of OpenUrl 1-click to full text becomes crucial
