Two industry giants stood tall, ready for the showdown of the century at the 30th Annual Charleston Conference in November. The face-off between EBSCO Discovery Service and Serials Solutions' Summon was billed as the next great battle between two industry giants offering search discovery services to libraries. While the library community was interested in the face-off, the executive teams at EBSCO Publishing and ProQuest considered this to be a very big deal, judging from the top company brass supporting this library event. But the real battle is for library end users. Although these systems are not perfect, they go a long way to providing that single point of access that library users want.
