The Importance of Discovery: How Prioritizing Exploration Promotes the Value of the Library

SESSION VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE

Your library offers students a wealth of ebooks and print books, but are students able to easily find and use these resources?

Often, librarians focus much of their effort on curating the highest quality content, but end up approaching discoverability of this content as an afterthought. The good news: You can balance these two important components of collection development with the right enrichment tools — like those offered through Syndetics Unbound.

During this session, we’ll explore challenges libraries like yours face when it comes to promoting discoverability, offering valuable examples of approaches that work and approaches that could use a little work. Finally, we’ll share insight into ProQuest’s latest innovation that will provide contextual discovery within the platform, saving your researchers time and effort.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the impact of a lack of discoverability on the library and its researchers.
  • Identify how the integration of Syndetics Unbound into Ebook Central will increase exploration and drive discoverability.
  • Recognize changes that could be made to enhance the discoverability of their library’s resources.
