The implementation of web scale discovery has yielded remarkable results at the University of North Florida. Full-text downloads more than doubled in the first year, and ILL dropped, but has the system realized its potential? As today’s library patron grows more sophisticated and more demanding, what more can we ask of today’s modern library search tool? Join Michael Kucsak and Jeremy Hall as they share a brief history of their library's success from assessment to implementation. Then they will discuss the future of the modern discovery tool and the changes vendors must make in order to survive the world of digital content delivery.

Presentation made to Discovery Tools Now and in the Future: An Amigos Online Conference on November 18, 2014 at 12 p.m.
