Abstract

Increasingly, libraries are viewed as irrelevant to the research process, leaving them vulnerable to being cut, both financially and from the mind of the end user. However, new ways of discovering content in library collections holds the promise of returning the researcher to the library. The author explores the impact of search technology including Discovery Layers (NGCs), Federated Search, and the emerging trend toward Web-Scale Discovery.
