Summary
Libraries want to provide comfortable access for the scientists to several digital information resources – not only to the library catalog. Discovery systems support this objective by allowing the integration of all sorts of data sources into one index. The Max Planck Digital Library and five Max Planck Institute libraries carried out a pilot project to establish a discovery system, which is simplifying the access to the libraries' information resources significantly.
