Oregon State University is pleased to announce the first public release of the LibraryFind metasearch software, developed by Oregon State University Libraries. LibraryFind is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
This first public release, version 0.7, has a number of advanced features, such as (but not limited to):
- 2-click user workflow (one click to find, one click to get)
- Integrated OpenURL resolver
- 2-tiered caching system to improve search response time
- Customizable user interface
As this is a pre-1.0 release, there are still a number of features, functions, and efficiencies we plan to add to the software. We encourage involvement from others in the library community who are interested in working on an open source metasearch product.
More information on LibraryFind, including information on how to download and run the software, can be found at http://libraryfind.org.
