Communities of Interest: Discovery

A page for all of the Communities of Interest


This group is founded and managed by Fenway Libraries Organization (FLO). Professionals involved Library and Information Science outside of FLO are welcome and encouraged to join. Our focus is on academic libraries in the Boston-area. This community of interest will focus on Discovery services in libraries including topics such as user experience, discovery layer technologies, usability and more. While many libraries in the area are using EBSCO Discovery Service, this group is open to discussing other services as well as big-picture topics for Discovery layers in general.


Date  Event Description
