Webinar on Central Discovery Index (CDI)

ExLibris (ProQuest) recently announced "significant progress" on their Central Discovery Index (CDI) product. According to their overview page, here are the Key Benefits:


Increased scalability and an improved infrastructure that is designed to address future challenges


Expanded content coverage


Continuous content enrichment and focus on data quality


Continued content neutrality


Granular resource types


Enhanced performance


Enhanced operational efficiencies for our customers, content partners and Ex Libris


For customers:


Single activation to publish content to users


Faster content update cycles (including new content)


Daily rights update for all customers (electronic holdings)


As Summon Library, we will begin using the CDI in Q3 of 2019.


I will participate in a webinar ("Ex Libris Central Discovery Index: An Overview and Update.") on May 29 at 11am to learn more about their roadmap for Summon, and how we might be able to directly leverage the CDI for our search and recommendation tools. Let me know if you are interested in joining.
