Impact of library discovery technologies : a report for UKSG / Valérie Spezi, Claire Creaser, Ann O’Brien, Angela Conyers. http://www.uksg.org/researchstudy
The goals of the study were:
- To evaluate the impact that library discovery technologies (such as link resolvers and web-scale resource discovery services) have on the use of academic resources
- To provide evidence to determine if there is a case for (a) investment in discovery technologies by libraries and (b) engagement with library discovery technologies by publishers and others in the academic information supply chain (unless no positive impact is found, in which case to provide evidence to this effect)
- To provide recommendations for actions that libraries, publishers and others in the academic information supply chain should take to engage with such technologies to best support the discovery of resources for teaching, learning and research
- To identify additional research, data, discussion, initiatives or other activities required that will support the implementation of the findings of this study.
