Library Journal Webinar

"Baking Discovery into the Pie: Driving Exploration within eResources"

Date & Time: Thursday, October 3rd, 2013, 3:00-4:00 PM ET/12:00 AM – 1:00 PM PT

Description: Discovery service not doing what you hoped it would? Your library just bought a brand new video collection, but you can’t you find anything in it?  As models like PDA and EBA become prevalent in all media formats, ensuring patrons can find what they are looking for is more essential than ever. But many types of content simply don’t rise to the top of discovery service searches, and other searches return too many unrelated results to be truly useful.

Here’s an idea: how about baking discovery into the actual resource? Let two product editors and a librarian walk you through their philosophy of search–that discovery shouldn’t mean losing discipline-specific searching, that videos and scores should be just as easy to find as books and periodicals, and cross-search should be a given – and then see examples of the impact this has on ease of use, find-ability, and ultimately, patron satisfaction.

Presenters:

- Liz Dutton - Senior Editor Music,  Alexander Street Press
Liz has nine years of publishing experience, and has proudly gained all of that experience at Alexander Street Press. Liz has a BA in Music and Mass Media from Marietta College, and an MM in Vocal Pedagogy from Westminster Choir College.

Now she happily licenses content, crafts bibliographies, elicits feedback from librarians and faculty, and scours the globe for the best content for music research. In her not so spare time, she’s an actress in the DC area, performing everything from Mamet to Shakespeare to funk musicals.

- Jordan White - Senior Product Manager, Alexander Street Press
Jordan has worked in online publishing for eight years, with experience in production, editing, sales and product management.  Armed with a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Georgetown University focused on European history and politics, he is a political and media junkie.  Jordan spends his days watching and playing with videos in the largest collection of academic video available online and his nights writing music with his wife and a group of friends.

- Helene Williams - Faculty, Collections Consultant University of Washington Information School
