Community of Interest

Statement of Purpose

The EDS Community of Interest was created to address issues related to the creation and administration of each institution's Discovery service, with a major focus on user-end experiences, layout, design and content. Coding skills are optional. Most of our communication will be facilitated through online correspondence, collaborating with OPAL, OhioLINK and EBSCO in terms of webinars and other forms of training and support, as well as sharing ideas and best practices within the group. Anyone is welcome to join this group as it pertains to a great majority of library functions.
