Key problems and needs

KEY PROBLEMS

Countless information resources, little time

Searchers on their own to be aware of collections, know how to link, know how to search

WE NEED TO HELP USERS QUICKLY AND CONVENIENTLY…

Learn what collections are available

Learn which collections are relevant to their needs

Find the particular parts of collections that meet their needs

Discovery tool
Discovery Tool

“Central to the Scholars Portal service is a discovery tool that enables a user to search across certain limited but diverse and distributed websites, library catalogs, and databases of information resources to retrieve and integrate the results in a single presentation.”

Why

ENCompass?


Cross collection searching
Cross Collection Searching

  • Unified access to widely distributed, variously described digital assets

    • EAD finding aid

    • Bird images

    • Full text (pamphlets)

  • Complex challenge

    • Granularity of search results

    • Size and relationships of result sets

    • Hierarchy, context, navigation

    • More
