In the group’s report “Next-Generation Systems at Dartmouth College,” released in September 2008, the No. 1 need was listed right at the top, on the very first page:'​We currently have a super abundance of resources accessed through a complex, disjointed discovery layer…. We need to strive for much simpler ways to find much more relevant information.'​ One search box to rule them all—federated discovery of all available resources (print, media, electronic resources) from a single point of entry is an overarching need. Next generation services must radically enhance resource integration and move us on from the isolated data silos of the present'​.//​
