Future of Library Resource Discovery

The National Information Standards Organization announces a new white paper from Marshall Breeding on The Future of Library Resource Discovery. From their press release:

“The white paper was commissioned by NISO’s Discovery to Delivery (D2D) Topic Committee as part of its ongoing examination of areas in the discovery landscape that the information community could potentially standardize. Included in the paper is an overview of the current discovery environment; descriptions of how these technologies, methodologies, and products may be able to adapt to potential future change; and a look beyond current models of discovery to explore possible alternatives, especially those related to linked data.”

The white paper is available online in pdf form here.
