  • 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
