Title: MetaGoogle! Using MetaLib to deliver user-centered information
Authors: Parry, Frank
Issue Date: 30-Aug-2006
Abstract: The term ‘MetaGoogle’ is used to represent the coming together of two information sources commonly used at Loughborough University. A little wishful thinking, perhaps, as Google is almost certainly the big brother in the relationship between MetaLib, Loughborough’s information portal, and Google. MetaLib was purchased at the same time as the new library management system, both products of the Ex Libris group. MetaLib did not ring any bells among the library staff – it was, after all, a very new system and Loughborough was an early adopter. It was, however, going to herald quite a few changes in the years ahead.
