This session explores examples of institutions searching for, struggling with and/or successfully implementing a tool to provide access to different types of collections in one place. We will explore lexicon issues, search capabilities, end-user concerns, field customization, file resources, federated searching and other strategies. Speakers represent two perspectives (art and history) to discuss factors such as budget, collection type, staff size and audience.
