Provide a simple and proven starting point for research
Are your patrons still searching each library resource using its own unique interface? Without a unified search interface to make it easy, patrons often get confused and frustrated, and ultimately abandon the process in favor of popular Web search sites.
Fortunately, federated search is a simple and proven starting point for library research. A single query combs all resources at once, and can include your OPAC and other local holdings in the results. When you put 360 Search on your Web site you can make holdings available anytime and anywhere so that patrons can find more of what they need when they need it.
