    Abstract:
    Students, faculty, and researchers need an efficient way to access collections with specialized content. Discovery layers can be designed to precisely target that content directly, focusing search results on the most relevant collections. Such a distinct view in Blacklight, the open source discovery layer in use at Indiana University, is allowing users to identify desired content from the Music Library, widely recognized as one of the largest academic music libraries in the world and accounting for nearly 10% of all holdings at IU Bloomington. Music librarians, along with Discovery and User Experience Librarians are creating this specialized view, providing search capabilities utilizing descriptive data elements to the music user community. By exploring how music users differ from general users leading to issues in discovery, presenters will showcase the strategies implemented for increasing music discovery at IU, and ways these solutions could be applied to other specialized collections.
