“Reintroducing Browse in Discovery Environments,” is the title of Adjunct Professor Richard Huffine’s presentation at the OCLC WordShare Management Services Global Community meeting. The meeting runs from September 26 through the 29th, and takes place in Dublin, Ohio.
Summary: For many libraries today, the challenge of discovering what the library has is one of too many options. To find what they have, libraries have implemented discovery services to broker requests across the myriad of platforms they support.
As a new Bureau (created in 2010), CFPB did not have a library catalog prior to the adoption of this strategy so there was no migration of information from one system to another. Richard Huffine is going to talk about his Bureau’s experience with Discovery, Search and Browse which integrates Browzine with the OCLC Discovery instance in an effort to reintroduce “Browse” in Discovery environments.
