This session discusses the trialing and adoption of a discovery system (ultimately Summon) and its integration with Voyager. Once the discovery went live Vufind was applied to the OPAC and Summon, which allows users to search in three different ways: combined, physical and electronic resources. Implementation best practices will be addressed along with the decision making logic for what items to show in what view. Although examples will be illustrated using the Voyager/Summon combination, the same implementation strategies can be applied to many different ILS and discovery systems, including Aleph, Primo and EDS. In the second half of the session and technology permitting, Demian Katz - a lead Vufind Developer - will be virtually on hand for a Q&A session and can address questions and concerns at any skill level.
