Digital Content Curation: How to Lead Users to Where They Need to Go and Make Sense of What They Find When They Get There

As the amount of content grows in products and across a library holdings there is an increasing need to give the users help in directing them toward the content that they are interested in. Search has worked well but is most useful for users who know pretty much what they are looking for. Better help for users that need to be led to the correct content is in order. There are a broad spectrum of attempts to solve this problem from librarians in the way that they organize their digital collections to the various ways the publisher and platform providers attempt to help solve the problem. This panel looks at the problem from a variety of view points to see what the issues are and what seems to be working or not.

Looking to compare/contrast librarian, publisher, and vendor points of view on the panel. Would also want to query the audience for their feedback.
Audience should expect to learn best practices, and interesting new approaches to the curation problem.
