New web scale discovery tool coming soon to City

Posted in Web scale discovery tools

City University Library will be launching a new search discovery tool later in the year. Web scale discovery services are a tool with major potential to transform the nature of library systems. These services are capable of searching quickly and seamlessly across a vast range of local and remote content and providing relevancy-ranked results. Examples of web scale discovery tools include: Primo Central, Ebsco Discovery Service and Summon. The product at City will be branded and renamed but is the Summon interface.

Try out the new search here.

We are currently testing and customising the product, so please give feedback by clicking on the feedback section while trying it out at the link above so we can make it work as well as possible.
