Who should attend?

This event will be valuable to anyone responsible for supporting discovery for e-resources in libraries and content providers or who are seeking a basic understanding of what is discovery and an introduction to some of the technology services that support scholarly communications.

The seminar will impart a practical understanding of the technological challenges and of metadata as key element of discovery.

 

Course Level and previous knowledge required

The course level is for beginners. Some familiarity with the different types of online scholarly content may be helpful, for example ejournals, ebooks and online databases. If you are new to this area, it may be worth first attending the UKSG Introduction to E-Resources which gives an overview of different types of resources and how they are published and provided online. This course is also suitable for people who needs a refresher (after a career break or moving jobs) as Discovery is a moving landscape.

Otherwise, no previous knowledge is required. In particular, please note that this is not a technical course, and no programming skills are required.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the main elements of discovery.
  • Understand libraries, system vendors and content providers understanding of discovery and process.
  • Understand the role of metadata on the discovery process.
  • Understanding of basic standards and terminology use in discovery
