Discovery Services Improving

I continue to be impressed with the ongoing improvements in library resource discovery services. These services aim to allow library users to access library resources with the same level of ease that they experience with the general Web through search engines like Google or Bing. But ease of use isn’t the only concern. It’s imperative that these discovery services deliver search results consistent with library values, which differ considerably from what applies in the commercial Web.
