REMINDER: Deadline for Proposals is January 16, 2015


This call for chapter proposals is for a book tentatively titled Exploring
Discovery: The Front Door to a Library’s Licensed and Digitized Content,
edited by Ken Varnum (University of Michigan), to be published by ALA
Editions (http://www.alaeditions.org/).


Proposal Submission Deadline: January 16, 2015


About the Book

Exploring Discovery will examine the range of discovery-focused tools and
technologies being deployed by libraries. It will provide a series of case
studies illustrating the interfaces and technologies that can be used by
libraries today. What cutting-edge tools and services are emerging from the
growing suite of discovery interfaces and indexes? Where is “discovery”
going, and what tools and techniques are emerging as standard elements in
the library technology toolbox? Chapter topics include, but are not limited
to:

   - Implementations of discovery tools based on commercial products such
   as Summon, EBSCO Discovery Service, Primo Central, and WorldCat Discovery
   Services.
   - Implementation of discovery tools using locally developed or other
   back-end databases and services.
   - Novel discovery implementations using open source tools such as
   Blacklight, Solr, Hydra/Fedora, VuFind, etc.
   - Investigations and/or implementations of user-focused services based
   on discovery tools.
   - Case studies about integrating services and tools from multiple
   discovery vendors into a single system.


Target Audience

Librarians and library technology staff who work with discovery interfaces,
course management systems, provide current awareness or alert services, or
are otherwise involved in electronic resource reference.
