Success in information retrieval means that a researcher discovers pertinent materials and efficiently accesses the full-text content or data for that information. Success for a library means meeting the needs of information seekers with the materials they collect, license or purchase – to provide discovery of and access to those materials. Success for a publisher means that their publications are fully integrated into a library system, so that libraries and their users get maximum benefit from finding and using this content. In reality, due to faulty processes, lack of application of standards and missing updates, information seekers are often incapable of accessing content. A collaborative group of librarians, publishers and OCLC will release a White Paper in September 2014 with recommendations and practical implementation guidelines for an improved workflow for quality metadata and access data. Join a discussion on best practices in applying industry standards and how to implement findings and recommendations into practice.
