Junus Metadata and Discovery: Pull Them All In

  1. 1. Metadata and Discovery Pull them all in and hope for the best? Ranti Junus, Michigan State University - @ranti NISO - BISG, ALA Annual 2017 -
  2. 2. One-search Convenience?
  3. 3. One-search Convenience
  4. 4. Metadata
  5. 5. Linking VS
  6. 6. RL_local?sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:28188020
  7. 7. Another potential metadata mismatch When the discovery service provider gets the data from the publisher, but we subscribe to an aggregator. - Does the aggregator also get the same data as the discovery service provider? When the aggregator derives their metadata from a scanned print version. - Page 1 on print version is not always the same as page 1 on the online version.
  8. 8. User’s Expectation Based on the trouble tickets that came so far: - One-click convenience might alter user’s expectation - They most likely only care whether they can access the information - Users don’t really look at the additional information - Still, it’s useful for troubleshooting
  9. 9. User’s Expectation - When the link doesn’t work, users don’t always try to redo a search on the target database - Article not found == we don’t have it.
