When the Library of Michigan set out for a redesign of the Michigan eLibrary (MeL;http://mel.org), it went well beyond look and feel. Even though no system at the time would accommodate real-time access to its union catalog of 14.6-plus million bibliographic records, more than 2 dozen commercial databases, a number of local history repositories, tens of thousands of curricular resources for teachers and homeschoolers, and targeted websites, it was undaunted. Learn how they built unique partnerships with Innovative and EBSCO to build and implement Encore Duet, a product tailored MeL’s unique content that, in addition to local physical collections, offers integrated searching of Michigan digital repositories, greatly expanding the reach and ease of access for users. Gather insights about the challenges, lessons learned, and future project directions.
