Discovery tools are an important topic for academic libraries. How useful are they to our patrons? What priority do we give them on our websites? How do we use them to distinguish one resource type, or group of resources, from another? How do we manage access across consortia without confusing our users? And how do we keep them usable, accessible, and maintainable?

In this panel, four librarians and a representative from Yewno will discuss implementing, selecting, teaching, and assessing discovery tools. The discussion will interest technical services staff, reference and instruction librarians, and web and user experience designers and developers.
