Library portal

A library portal is an interface to access library resources and services through a single access and management point for users, combining the circulation and catalog functions of an integrated library system with additional tools and facilities. A library portal is defined as "a combination of software components that unify the user experience of discovering and accessing information" in contrast to a "single technology" to provide "services that support discovery and effective use of information." In addition to the basic functions of access to the library catalog, a user's subscription records, significant elements of a library portal include: "Metasearching tools, browsable interfaces, online reference help," which aid in the discovery process, for example Knimbus, Mendeley, J-Gate, EBSCO Discovery services. The terms "discovery tool," "discovery services," "next-generation discovery tool," "next-generation OPAC" are used interchangeably; the focus on discovery tools has led to increased competitors in the discovery services market.

A list of competitors in the current library portal market who have been awarded contracts by various libraries for their entire portal include: Axiell Arena: contract with The University of Gävle Axiell Calm: contract with Denmark’s Roskilde Libraries for archive management BIBIS Library Portal: contract with ROC Mondriaan in The Hague as well as the library of the central bank of the Netherlands, the library of Provincie Zuid-Holland in South-Holland, at Dutch law firm Ploum Lodder Princen. ExLibris Primo: contract with Hesburgh Libraries of Notre Dame. Library Technology refers to this “discovery and delivery solution” as a “library portal”. MetaLib Library Portal, ExLibris: contract with NASA’s Johnson Space Center By contrast, the following list highlights contracts signed by libraries for specific discovery service tools at more recent dates EOS. Web OPAC Discovery, EOS International: while it is unclear which of EOS services were purchased by their clients, the benefits to the EOS. Web OPAC Discovery grew recently when EOS International signed an ILL agreement with the New York Law Institute, which will allow EOS clients to request NYLI union catalog items from their EOS.

Web OPAC”. EOS International’s press releases do not specify which service was purchased but only mention the names of new clients. Summon, Serials Solutions: contract with University of Texas at Austin Libraries, University of Connecticut Libraries, University of Illinois at Chicago Library, California State University System, Syracuse University Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library, Lund University Libraries, Helmut Schmidt University, Peking University, University of the Free State, Cornell University Library, Brown University Library, Kyushu University Library Ex Libris Primo and SFX OpenURL: contract with Online Dakota Information Network. Another challenge is ensuring a user-centered design for the portal; this involves conducting surveys, focus group interviews, usability studies – all of which can be seen as time-consuming. Additionally, compatibility with the hosting institution is critical; the question of whether a library should go with open source software or commercial products is always a point of contention.

There are no accepted standards for library portals. The only standards in the literature are the more general search and retrieval standards, including Z39.50 and ZING, the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, OpenURL. As a result of the lack of standards, since customization is required in a library portal, individual institutions decide what they expect their portal to look like, what services it will provide. For example, Harvard University is conducting a library portal project, which will begin implementation during the summer of 2012, they have identified their own list of criteria, which differs from the needs of other institutions. The various general areas that the committee has looked at include: content, user experience and capabilities, infrastructure and security, search and discovery, it is uncertain. The online public access catalog is part of the library's integrated library system. Earlier, the OPAC has been limited to searching physical texts, sometimes digital copies but has only limited special features.

Caplan argues that they are in process of replacement by newer "discovery tools" allowing more customization. Yang and Hofmann suggest that vendors see money in building either separate discovery tools or Next-Generation OPACs to be purchased as an add-on feature. A problem with vocabulary arises here. Yang and Wagner refer to discovery tools by many
