Innovative Uses of MetaLib, Featuring the MetaLib X-Server

As students and researchers are increasingly broadening the horizons of their search for scholastic material, the need for metasearching continues to spill over into all areas of the academic computing environment--be it the library portal, course management systems, or subject-specific websites.

Join this webinar to gain insight to how you can:

  • Provide metasearch services to your users right where they are and in the context they understand
  • Provide unified search interfaces to minimize the users' learning curve and library's support requirements
