3.3.2 Linking:   We endorse the recommendation that Discovery service providers offer an affirmative statement of neutrality of algorithms for search results, relevance rankings, and link order.    But without a way to evaluate compliance it is likely that libraries and content providers will remain skeptical regarding the unbiased nature of Discovery Service results.     

Submitter Proposed Solution

establish an impartial process to evaluate equitable linking and relevancy ranking.
