Many libraries are utilizing or considering Uniform Resource Discovery and Delivery (URD2) systems as a means to provide a single interface for users to find resources contained in various information silos. These silos may include Integrated Library Systems (ILS), digital repository and preservation systems, and journal discover systems such as Primo Central and Summon. While URD2 systems provide convenient, one-stop shopping, often they are unable to search or display all of the metadata that users would have access to if they were to search the native system. This may cause a weakening of context for users. This presentation, based on the presenters' experience implementing the Primo discovery and delivery system and the Rosetta digital preservation system at Binghamton University, will offer insights into common metadata-related issues with URD2 system and propose useful suggestions to help librarians confront these challenges head-on.
