Project Title: ULib2: investigating resource discovery tools within a library environment

Project Aim: This project builds on the successful and ongoing U-Lib Project which is investigating the potential of open source tools to redefine the LMS in a college environment. Our library practitioners’ workshop and student requirements gathering exercise have identified a need for an integrated resource discovery tool which will allow seamless searching across college collections and licensed e-resources. This kind of functionality is not currently available within college library services (SLIC Survey 2014) but has the potential to be of considerable value to the college sector
