Blog Post and Report: “Mapping Duke University Libraries’ Discovery System Environment”

From a Post by Maggie Dickson on “Bitstreams” From the Digital Projects Team at Duke University Libraries:

Just over one year ago, Duke University Library’s Web Experience team charged a new subgroup – the Discovery Strategy Team – with “providing cohesion for the Libraries’ discovery environment and facilitate discussion and activity across the units responsible for the various systems and policies that support discovery for DUL users”. Jacquie Samples, head of the Metadata and Discovery Strategy Department in our Technical Services Unit, and I teamed up to co-chair the group, and we were excited to take on this critical work along with 8 of our colleagues from across the libraries.
