Library Committee Outcomes

The Library Committee addressed these items on 25 March 2014:

  • WorldCat Discovery will replace WorldCat Local and the FirstSearch in 2014-2015, combining the simplicity of WorldCat with the precision of FirstSearch. WorldCat Discovery screens adapt for viewing on mobile devices. A central index manages content in all formats from multiple vendors. The service will allow Averett to manage local digital collections, build customized reading lists, and populate Google Scholar and PubMed with Averett Library holdings.

Note: Costs for WorldShare and WorldCat Discovery will be equal to or lower than the fees Averett currently pays for a more limited range of services from multiple library system vendors.
