In the age of networked information, we've seen major changes to the
expectation of how bibliographic data is searched and serves research.
Summon is a web-scale discovery service that indexes and provides
relevancy ranking across 1 Billion items from thousands of collections and
makes them accessible to researches from a single search box in 450
institutions in over 40 countries. JSTOR is a not-for-profit provider of high
quality scholarly content spanning more than 300 years and covering nearly
60 disciplines. JSTOR provides on-line access to nearly 1,600 journals for
more than 7,500 institutions in 166 countries. This presentation will discuss
similarities in the mission and differences in the scope of these two services,
including how they work together. We'll delve into the inner workings of each
including treatment of data, analysis of search, and challenges each service
faces in their mission.
