This longitudinal survey of the library websites of sixteen Alabama senior universities tracks customizations done to these libraries’ web-scale discovery tools over a twenty-one month period. The findings of this survey could serve as reference points that could benefit libraries who have had web-scale discovery for some time as well as libraries considering purchase of web-scale discovery.
