AKLA Conference 2009

Pros and Cons of Metasearch

In Summer 2008, the UAA/APU Consortium Library purchased a metasearch product called 360 Search from Serials Solution. Metasearch provides a way for students, faculty, and staff to search across multiple library catalogs and subscription databases from a single search interface. This session will cover how metasearch works, implementation issues, and what have been the successes and failures.
