Episode 34: Discovery Layers in the Classroom

Listen to the podcast (mp3, ~58 minutes)

Rachel and Jason educate Anna about "discovery layers," while the two of them wrestle with the idea of how, when, where, and why discovery layers fit in an instruction session.

 Please excuse the excessive noise around the 23 minute mark; Anna's 4-year-old felt the need to snuggle with her while recording.

Show Notes:

  • GSU’s “Discover” (EBSCO Discovery Service)
  • American University's SearchBox
  • Discovery Layer Interfaces via Library Technology Guides

  • Update: Anna came to learn (post-recording) that HER [public] library actually has a discovery layer via SirsiDynix's Enterprise. Who knew?
