In Denver, I presented a 5 minute topic regarding the book a colleague of mine and I are writing a book entitled “Federated Search: A Librarian’s Guide”. Â We are surveying both library practitioners and the federated search vendors to get a complete picture of what the profession is looking for and what the current / forthcoming options are. This data will be combined with a guide onÂ selecting and implementing a federated search tool. The aim is to illuminate all of the decisions necessary in order to alleviate the pitfalls of the process.
There is still time to give us your feedback through our survey and feel free to pass along this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx? sm=Au1Me4INFknkQbscTVcViw_3d_3d
Additionally, if you are interested in contributing your experience with implementation to the book, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) asap!
