Federated Search: Growing Your Own Tools (OPLIN)

959 vues

Publié le

Libraries spend a considerable amount of money each year on subscriptions to proprietary databases of online information. The most efficient way to access these expensive resources is through a federated search tool, but due to a lack of speed and difficulty of use, some third party federated search products can leave both patrons and library staff dissatisfied. Solomon describes how OPLIN undertook the development of a federated search tool that is “Google-like” in nature and provides accurate results with fast response times. She shares the process used to create a unique tool that combines both open source and proprietary components that has resulted in significant increases in both searches and documents retrieved.
