Some “new OPAC” stuff from Michael Doran

March 6, 2007 at 2:21 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Michael Doran is a very helpful memeber of the Voyager users discussion list. Here are some things he recently pointed out:

Lucene , some open source search software project. Their open source search server is Solr.

An example of Lucene in an OPAC from the National Library of Australia, in the Australian National Bibliographic Database.

An ApacheCon 2006 presentation by Chris Hostetter about faceted searching with Solr.

And, finally, a pilot project from Andrew Nagy at Villanova University Library called MyResearch Portal, presented at code4lib 2007. This one looks very interesting.
