Discovery is a key component of a library's services, and user expectations are high. Even if a Web-scale discovery system is not in the cards, there is plenty a library can do to improve discovery for their users.

The presentation shares successful strategies for evaluating and improving discovery, no expensive software or programming skills necessary.
