Monday, 29 March, 11 am-12:30 pm EDT (UTC 15:00): Single Search with Gunter

Users are puzzled that they can search Internet resources through a single
search engine query, yet the resources of university campuses and cultural
heritage institutions are often segregated into a plethora of silos, each
with its own dedicated search. The aspiration of rationalizing search
across institutional library, archive and museum (LAM) collections surfaced
as a central concern at all five Beyond the Silos of the LAMs workshops,
and in many of the subsequent presentations, events and interactions with
the RLG Partnership. This webinar will present emerging practices in the
local aggregation of LAM collections, with a particular emphasis on
successful strategies and dead ends in the quest for single search.

OCLC Research program officer Gunter Waibel will moderate this webinar and
presenters will include:
– Michael Fox, Deputy Director, Minnesota Historical Society
– Emmanuelle Delmas-Glass, Collections Catalogue Specialist,
Yale Center for British Art
– Ching-Hsien Wang, Manager of Library and Archives System
Support, Office of Chief Information Officer, Smithsonian Institution
