Description:Eric Frierson, the library digital services manager at St. Edward's University, discusses the implementation of a discovery layer at St. Edward's University, including a website redesign.

Discovery layer interfaces bring libraries closer to providing a search experience novice users are comfortable with: a single search box that takes natural language and returns highly relevant library resources. However, adopting discovery layers introduces issues in website design, user experience and culture change at the library. At St. Edward's University, this included a website redesign that centered focus on a single search box as well as motivating library staff to accept and promote the new tool. Results from usability tests that examined the discovery search and features developed in-house at St. Ed's will be shared.

Eric Frierson manages the library's integrated library system, website, digitization projects and open-source digital projects.
