Session Description:

Discoverability is the ability to be found, to be known—and discovery tools are what make the move from unknowable to knowable possible. (Think telescopes in the Renaissance.) Scholars will come away from the roundtable understanding what discoverability is (and was) and with a sense of what discovery tools are, where their future lies, and how we are all likely to benefit.
