Discovery of eBooks and Media - What Will It Take?

Data indicating that half of print book collections were never checked out is increasing interest in PDA/DDA programs to ensure that a book selected at point of discovery will have at least one user. Discovery of print books is supported by browsing the stacks, yet today print and eBooks lack the rich descriptive data and indexing that has facilitated use of online journals. In streaming video, demand for PDA/DDA is also on the rise, yet discovery mechanisms face similar challenges. What is necessary for books and media to enjoy a comparable level of use by reaching their core community and the long tail? How is the data for book and media discovery for use different than that required for acquisitions decisions? How can publishers and libraries better collaborate to support the library workflow from selection to discovery and use? Join a discussion to expand our thinking about how to realize the value of the entire collection.
