Rethinking the library catalogue

25Aug11

Federated searching that works well and a great display at University of Calgary Library. Federated searching is not new and perhaps about 10 years old now. But I ran some simple search strategies through the catalogue, which can search the libraries, museum, and archives. Users have the ability to limit results by content type or subject terms by checking boxes. For the visually inclined, I love dragging on the publication range as this may encourage people to use this feature and less clunky than trying to figure out date syntax.
