The Open Discovery Initiative (ODI) is conducting a survey on discovery services. ODI, a working group of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO), aims to develop a recommended practice, with the goal of broader participation of content providers and increased transparency to libraries.
Libraries that have implemented or plan to implement a discovery service, organizations that potentially contribute content to one or more such services, primary publishers, producers of aggregated databases of citation or full-text content for libraries, and creators of abstracting and indexing services are all invited to complete the survey, which ODI estimates will take about 20 minutes.
Results shared will be anonymous and only aggregate data will be released.
Respondents who identify themselves will be entered into a drawing for one of six $25 Amazon e-gift cards sponsored by Ex Libris and SAGE, and will receive a copy of the aggregated results.
A full report on the findings of the survey will be made available on the NISO website later this year.
