Abstract: The world of discovery in general and of library discovery in particular is changing rapidly today. FRBR, RDA, discovery tools, and faceted browsing are key factors related to these changes in the way our users encounter library data. There are so many options for library discovery, beyond the OPAC, but still including OPACs; a few of the current options are shown on this slide The Music Discovery Requirements document addresses discovery interfaces of all kinds. As libraries and vendors develop and implement new and existing tools, the specialized discovery needs arising from music materials are often lost in the shuffle.
