Implementing web scale discovery systems such as Summon, EBSCO EDS and Primo Discovery require huge shifts in the way we operate as information professionals. Discoverability in the Academic Library examines cultural changes associated with discoverability, how web scale discovery impacts information literacy teaching and how we can design systems to elicit delight and joy for our users. The first chapter introduces library systems, with the following section going on to explore and detail the cultural challenges of web scale discovery. Remaining chapters explore online information resources and library website design, before the final chapter offers a conclusion and thoughts on the future for libraries and web scale discovery.
