The Search for the "Can Do" Program

abstract
In the literature, legends, and fiction of the human experience, words have been spoken about special objects that could perform specific functions and tasks. These objects have such notable attributes that they almost have a mystical or a magical quality about them. These are the objects that can do a nearly infinite number of tasks, especially when presented with situations when resourcefulness is required to reach a satisfactory conclusion. Librarians also have been in search of an all-in-one tool as a means to solve some of frustrations that relate to auto- mated systems. The complex nature of these systems has led to a desire to simplify their operation as much as possible while providing for the maximum return on those investments. Three such systems—the electronic resource management system, federated searching, and discovery layers—repre- sent the pursuit of these ideals that have taken decades to achieve.
