===============================================================

NISO will be holding a two-part webinar on March 11 and 18 to explore
the question, Is Granularity the Next Discovery Frontier?

The rise of the Discovery System in the library world has helped to
streamline searching for end users by providing them with search
functionality that more closely resembles search engines like Google
than traditional database searches. But with this streamlined search
comes added expectations from users about their ability to drill down
into content and retrieve more granular pieces of information—anything
from book chapters and individual letters to the editor to specific
graphs and images could conceivably be retrieved in a more granular
search.

Users are beginning to expect more granular search and access in
Discovery System searches -- encyclopedia articles, images, tables,
book chapters. The implications for discovery system providers,
content providers, and libraries to realize this vision are
significant. These granular "objects" each have to be retrievable
separately from the parent object and each has to have its own
metadata and indexing. What is needed to ensure that discovery systems
can retrieve and display information below the publication or article
level? What is the role of the content provider and the library in
this scenario? How do libraries help end users find and use this
content?

This two-part NISO Webinar for March will examine the many
implications of an increasingly granular discovery environment.
