Transcript of EDS - OhioLINK

Implementing EDS at Wright State
-Leigh Duncan, August 2013

Why a Discovery Layer?
We have "silos" of information: databases, IRs, catalog
Website usability testing indicated our catalog was used for article searches
We've been using EBSCO's A-Z product for several years
Our users are very familiar with other EBSCO products

Configuration and Implementation
Guest Access? No
Decided against creating connectors to non-partner databases; instead added MARC records to our catalog for two important collections
Changed LinkSource text to "Find It" and used the smallest LinkSource icon available
Configured the LinkSource link to show in the Results List and Detailed Record pages
Removed OLinks and added LinkSource for our profiles
Following our beta implementation in mid-May 2013:
Included our 970 TOC data in the EDS Content Note field
Picked a name: QuickSearch? EZSearch? WrightSearch?
Working with OhioLINK and EBSCO to test a "lower relevancy-ranked" OL catalog
Defining our ongoing maintenance and development responsibilities
