The Hidden Library: Increasing Discoverability in Non-Textual Search


 By Diane T Sands     Tasha Bergson-Michelson    Susannah Cleveland       Daniel Verbit



As resources become increasingly full content, and more metadata – color, image size, modification date – are exposed, how is search technique implicated? What discovery systems can we create and enable for non-digital, non-textual items such as music LPs and visual resources so that additional metadata can be exploited and different surrogates created? Join librarians working in research instruction, music, and information systems to explore search and discovery that can expose “the hidden library.”
