Single Search: The Quest for the Holy Grail

Source: OCLC Research

From the press release:

This report highlights successful strategies in providing a single point of access to library, archive and museum collections.

In the era of global search engines, users are often puzzled by the realization that they can search the Internet through a single interface, yet the resources of universities and other institutions are often compartmentalized in a plethora of informational silos, each with its own dedicated system, search categories and user interfaces. Many institutions want to make the breadth of their local resources easily discoverable regardless of where and how the resources are managed. ...

The goal of the report is to foster successful single search implementations by sharing the experience of [a] working group with those who are just beginning to plan single search implementations.
