At ELUNA 2016, the presenter shared results of his research on the effectiveness of Summon and other components of the discovery ecosystem at helping users get to full text. One key finding then was that Summon’s Index Enhanced Direct Linking (IEDL) succeeded at finding full text 89% of the time, compared to 80% for the link resolver. Follow-up studies in 2017 showed improvement to 99% and 90%, respectively. In 2018, Ball State University migrated to Alma (from Symphony/Intota/360), while keeping Summon for discovery. How has this improved full-text discovery at Ball State? The presenter will redo his study with Summon over Alma and will share his results in Atlanta.
