Library cataloging departments can no longer keep up with the deluge of electronic publishing content and must rely on publisher-provided metadata to support access to this content. This session will provide an overview of how library catalogs, link resolvers and discovery systems work and will present case studies of how publisher metadata embedded in these systems supports the discovery experience for academic library users. Examples from several publishers will be highlighted to illustrate different approaches that publishers can take in providing metadata to libraries and library service providers. Attendees will also learn about existing metadata standards that address metadata quality and formats.
