(SirsiDynix) Patrons using popular search engines, like Google, Bing, Siri and Yahoo, can find library item records in search engine results when searching for a title and including Westchester Library System. This new tool makes items in the online catalog more readily accessible to patrons in their homes or on mobile devices at their convenience, without requiring a visit to the library website to search for an item. Over time, patron use will help to improve Westchester Library System's relevance in search engine results. The increase in relevance means that engines will be able to deliver library catalog records without requiring that Westchester Library System be included in the search. Eventually simple title searches will pair a searcher's geo-location with result data and identify local libraries with the desired item.
