Library Discovery and the Open Access challenge – Academic librarians and open access – Medium

Summary:

"I’m not so sure where the “96%” figure comes from, as the most recent article by Springer mentions “ Around half” come from Google, Google Scholar, Bing etc and “one fifth was from abstracting services, repositories, as well as library sources, including OPACS and discovery services”

Still 20% seems a pretty sad figure for all library related services. Web scale discovery (the area that libraries control directly and expand the most effort to customize) is presumably even a much smaller share of the pie (5%?) and we have no reason to expect this will improve."
