Librarians need to maximize usage of the content to which they subscribe. Research shows that increased usage can lead to increased undergraduate attainment and supports key academic research activities. One such way is to offer a single search box for library users to access subscribed content via a Webscale or resource discovery system. This paper will show evidence from the University of Huddersfield that discovery tools level the playing field and will show some of the consequences for those publishers who are yet to do this or those that do not adopt standards.
