A302: Innovations in Discovery: Finding Knowledge & Ideas

11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Moderator: Athena Hoeppner, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Central Florida Libraries
Sean R. McMahon, Founder & President, Knowtro, Inc.
Michelle Valiani, Channel Partner Manager, Yewno Inc.

Libraries have a long record of creating and improving tools for content discovery, usually leveraging metadata to surface articles, books, and media content. But what if researchers had tools for discovering the knowledge within that content or for revealing novel ideas that warrant exploration? This panel explores two such tools: Knowtro and Yewno. Knowtro extracts findings from published content and helps researchers find, cite, and use scientific research findings in seconds. Yewno assesses meaning from published content and produces a graphical interface for exploring interrelationships between concepts. Speakers introduce their discovery service, what it does and how the technology works, and how it fills a need for researchers. They include a lively discussion of new approaches to discovery, how they relate to—and differ from— traditional content discovery, the role of libraries in evaluating and introducing the new tools to researchers, and coordinating the new technology with existing tools.
