Discovery and the Future of the Catalog
A Panel Discussion

Wednesday, November 12, 1:00pm

How’s that new discovery service really working out in your library?
Join the Connect & Communicate series’ panel of academic librarians, from colleges and universities in Pennsylvania, for a discussion about discovery service and the future of the catalog.

Panelists include:
Sara Pike (Shippensburg University of PA)
Robert Flatley (Kutztown University of PA)
Sarah Hartman-Caverly (Delaware County Community College)
Amanda Avery (Marywood University)
Jamey Harris (Mansfield University)
Ashley Esposito (Shippensburg University of PA)

The Connect & Communicate Series Planning Committee is pleased to offer this virtual discussion, in which panelists will discuss what they learned and the challenges they encountered as they worked through the process of selection, implementation, and assessment of discovery services. Find out how discovery has changed instruction in their libraries, what faculty and students think about it, and where things are headed in the future.
