This Lively Lunch will be delivered as a panel presentation by librarians who have employed Ebsco’s Discovery System (EDS) in their academic libraries.  The panelists will address several important aspects of launching a discovery system such as Implementation, Information Literacy, and Assessment, Usability and Customization.  The implementation component will include technical aspects, business requirements, launch preparation, and implementation success.  The information literacy component will include how academic reference services and library instruction has been transformed because of EDS. Assessment, Usability and Customization will focus on customizing the search box, modifying the display of custom links, operability of link resolvers, and assessing EDS using statistics and usability testing.

Michael Gorrell from EBSCO will be present to answer questions and a Q & A time is scheduled at the end of each session for audience members to ask questions, comment and share experiences.
