Discovery Tool Components
 Discovery layer- user interface with a single search box that
returns combined results, assists the user locating and accessing
content
 Catalog+ - catalog data plus other sources; metadata from Aleph,
Digital collections, Wolfsonian Museum Library, OSTI, CRL and
Hathi Trust
 Mega-index – proprietary tools that index metadata from articles,
reference sources, newspapers, ebooks, etc. and some full text for
searching
 Other – content not in mega-index, full-text subscriptions, link
resolver, recommender service, holdings and circ data, etc.
MANGO Discovery Tool Project
 Working to include article search since 2009
 Began working with Ex Libris’s Primo Central Index in early 2010
 4 SULs beta testing the Mango/PCI (USF, UWF, UNF and UCF)
 Began working with other mega-indexes in early 2011, have beta
of Mango/EDS and Mango/Summon
 Mango Discovery Layer has single search box, blended results and
facets
 FCLA investigating content of different mega-indexes

mega-indexes is a fully realized Discovery Tool
Core philosophy is flexibility, which is key in a rapidly
changing, nascent marketplace
Not locked in to proprietary interface, mega-index, A&I
databases, link-resolver, other vendor services
Leverages the investment in existing MANGO user interface
No down-time for catalog searches if mega-index is
unavailable
Low cost solution
Leverages State-wide Investment in
Mango
 Retention of features developed collaboratively with FIU
libraries (e.g. Series Title/Volume facet, Advanced multiboolean multi-index search, in-process request emails for
cataloging and special collections, ejournal tab)
 Continues UBorrow program for patron empowerment
across disparate collections
 Access to SUS Union Catalog allows state-wide discovery
 Preserves integrated research tools and services unique to
each library (e.g. location maps. Ask a librarian, push to
RefWorks, etc.)
