Services(ALCTS) for an e-forum discussion on Monday, March 9 and
Tuesday, March 10, 2009. Although participation is free for ALCTS
members and non-members alike, registration is required as noted below.

“Breaking Down the Silos: Planning for Discovery in Library 2.0” is a
continuation of the discussion initiated at the ALCTS Symposium of the
same name held at the 2009 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver. Several of
the Symposium slide presentations are available at

Libraries have collected a diverse set of resources which they have made
available to their patrons. However, access to these resources have
often been presented in separate silos without the capability of
providing integrated access across them. A variety of discovery tool
options are being implemented by libraries to deliver the information in
a more focused and intuitive manner.

Share your own library’s success stories, experiences, decisions, etc.!
