*Introduction:*

The concept of “resource discovery” has many meanings.  Only now is it
beginning to be defined as a description for library research software that
allows a library user to search multiple Web-based resources simultaneously
and bring back usable search results.  Resource discovery tools have become
more mainstream resources.  As librarians work to find, purchase and
implement such products as EBSCO Discovery Service, Encore, Primo, and
Summon as well as open source tools they need to develop structured
procedures for review and implementation that ensure they are using funds
wisely.  A related topic has been the development of open source delivery
layers for catalogs that allow catalog data, other local data sources and,
sometimes, commercial resources, to be pulled together in one location using
such software products and Blacklight, VuFind, and Extensible Catalog.
Librarians working to select and implement such systems need to make similar
decisions. To date, very little has been published on this topic and only a
small number of conference programs and presentations have been scheduled or
given.  There is an immediate need for information and shared ideas.



The mission of this book is to provide librarians and administrators with
information they can use to evaluate and implement a resource discovery
product—to determine how well such software can meet the needs of their
users, to make a product choice based on their local needs, to develop plans
for implementation, to implement the software and integrate it into the
research lives of users, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the software
in their own environments.

Resource discovery tools have become more mainstream resources.  As
librarians work to find, purchase and implement such products as EBSCO
Discovery Service, Encore, Primo, and Summon, as well as open source tools they
need to develop structured procedures for review and implementation that
ensure they are using funds wisely. To date, very little has been published
on this topic and only a small number of conference programs and
presentations have been scheduled or given.  There is an immediate need for
information and shared ideas.

*Objective of the Book: *
We have the following objectives for this book:

   - Propose a working definition of “resource discovery” that can be used
   in professional discussions about resource discovery products.
   - Identify user behaviors based on empirical research that lead to a need
   for “resource discovery.”
   -  Identify best practices for selecting a discovery tool.* *
   - Identify best practices for configuring and implementing a discovery
   tool.
   - Collect and share usability test results for resource discovery and
   related tools and their implementation into library products and services.
   - Present representative examples of the implementation of discovery
   tools.
   - Identify areas of concern in use of a resource discovery tool and
   suggest future enhancements.

*Target Audience: *
The primary audience for this book is composed of librarians and library
administrators in academic libraries, both large and small.  Librarians who
are interested in providing resources for users to find information, who are
interested in emerging technologies, who maintain library Web sites and
catalogs, or provide library instruction to students, faculty and staff in
colleges and universities will find the overview information useful. Library
administrators who must set priorities and find funding for new resources
will be able to use the book to help them plan their review of the
marketplace, selection of an appropriate tool, and implementation of that
tool.

*Recommended topics include but are not limited to, the following:***

User behavior and expectations for library web sites and finding tools

How the digital consumer experience influences online research

What libraries have learned from federated search

How college students, faculty members, or other researchers find information

Selecting a discovery tool

Integrating local digital collections and non-mainstream resources into
discovery tools

User testing and user-centered design in implementing discovery solutions

Issues in implementing a discovery tool

Representative examples of discovery tools in use including product choice,
user input, setting up the discovery tool, and lessons learned

Areas of concern in use of the discovery tool
  Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit *on or before February
28, 2011*, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and
concerns of his or her proposed chapter.  The proposal should summarize the
proposed contents of the paper, provide a draft outline of major points to
be included, and provide a chapter title.  **



Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by *March 28, 2011* about the
status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are
expected to be submitted by *June 30, 2011.* All submitted chapters will be
reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested
to serve as reviewers for this project.
