Once Upon a Time: GVSU and Summon at 3 Years

Once Upon a Time: GVSU and Summon at 3 Years

By understanding the needs of our library users through story thinking, we at Grand Valley State University are improving our users' access to top-quality research material. At the 3-year anniversary of launching with Serials Solutions Summon Discovery Service, Matthew Reidsma reviews the history of discovery at GVSU and how we're changing our own thinking about connecting users to information. Plus, he uses video game metaphors to explain how instruction and user interfaces mesh.
