Today's library customers seem to struggle with the complexity of traditional online library catalogues and databases when it comes to finding literature relevant to their subjects. This is one of the main reasons why 'Discovery Services' and 'One-Stop-Shop' have shaped up into somehow global buzzwords, since these new service offers do simplify crossing the threshold and learning in libraries. They are the entrance portal to academic research aiming at both customer retention and win-back from large-scale web search engines as primary information resources. DigiBib - The Digital Library has been following the path to offer a full service bundle for library users for many years by now. On these grounds, it was only a matter of consequence to also fit the new technologies into the library portal and provide a discovery service with catalogue feature integration. This article reports on project modules and implementation of DigiBib IntrOX.
