Feedback form is now closed.
In the last ten years, Spanish university libraries have been equipped with so-called "discovery tools" to offer their users a single point of search for scientific information available in different formats. The present work begins by analyzing the instruments that libraries have been using in the last decades to access information, from OPACs to discovery tools, for which it is described the commercial products most installed in Spain, as well as the way their users look for academic information. In order to know the situation of the discovery tools in the Spanish university libraries, data was collected in two ways: the direct study of their web pages, as well as the carrying out of a survey, addressed to the library management, which obtained a percentage of response very representative Finally, the results of the surveys and of the study of the websites of the Spanish university libraries are analyzed and the conclusions drawn are presented regarding the degree of satisfaction, the effect of their use in different library services, as well as the valuation of the commercial solutions installed.
