Target Audience: Reference/research librarians, electronic resource librarians, IT librarians, wired librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will gain an understanding of the enterprise search model and how it differs from a federated search.
2. Participants will become aware of vendor-related issues that may need to be resolved in order to implement a new discovery model successfully.

Based on the experiences gained by participants in the IMLS-funded NELLCO Universal Search Solution (USS) project, the panelists and attendees will discuss pathways to the future for libraries to improve discovery in an era of ubiquitous information resources and dwindling budgets. Enhancing patrons' timely discovery of relevant information will be an important role for librarians and a necessary goal of legal information providers to insure continued market share in an increasingly competitive market. The role of open source projects like the USS, Drupal, and the Extensible Catalog Project will be included in the discussion. We will assign a twitter hashtag for this session and invite attendees to bring their devices and join the dialogue. The tweets will be monitored by a moderator and pulled into the panelists' discussion where relevant.
