Greetings ByWater Blog readers and news followers!

Today’s innovative search tools allow libraries to re-qualify and extend their holdings by offering patrons a single search interface to all library resources including scholarly material, catalog holdings, electronic databases and much more.

On Tuesday October 1, 2013 Koha adopter and ByWater partner, The American University of Rome (in collaboration with the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce)will host a one day conference to examine new trends in the evolving domain of discovery and search tools.
