From isolation to integration: re-shaping the serials data silos

Author:

David Seaman

Abstract

This article is about the so-called 'data-silo' phenomenon, in which content is isolated by the publisher or aggregator, and which generates an unreasonable cluster of destination points for the harried student or professor to visit, each with its own interface, set of functions and behaviors. A user has no confidence that what one can do on Site A (limit browsing by a community's terminology; bookmark at the article level) will also be true at Site X, and libraries have limited abilities to build services for local needs on top of such a disjointed data landscape.
