User expectations that libraries deliver the same “discovery to access” experiences as commercial services and websites give us new opportunities for connecting people with the information resources they need. We’ve embedded libraries into people’s lives, rather than expecting them to come to us, and today’s search offers an increasingly intuitive, personalized experience that reflects individual needs and preferences. Still, libraries fall short of the convenience of the commercial services we use every day. Advances in technology, along with innovations in user- and data-driven design of library services, will inform development of simplified access to the riches of your library and beyond.
