Please forgive any cross-posting.

We have been investigating web-scale discovery tools (such as EBSCO's EDS, Serials Solutions' Summon, Swets' SwetsWise Searcher, etc.) as a way to provide our users with a single search box that can search our various licensed electronic resources including databases, textbooks, journals, etc., at one time.

We're interested in learning about the experiences and attitudes of other medical librarians regarding discovery tools and would appreciate your taking this very brief survey.  We would like your input even if you don't have a discovery tool in your library.

We will report the findings at MLA '14, but if you would like a summary of the results, then just let us know.

We need your response by January 24.

Please follow the link below to take the survey:

We appreciate your willingness to complete this survey.
