Library cataloging departments can no longer keep up with the deluge of electronic publishing content and must rely on publisher-provided metadata to support access to this content. This session will provide an overview of how library catalogs, link resolvers and discovery systems work and will present case studies of how publisher metadata embedded in these systems supports the discovery experience for academic library users.

Attendees will also learn about existing metadata standards that address metadata quality and formats.
