Ft Lauderdale, FL USA January 10, 2003 - Southeast Florida Library Information Network (SEFLIN) has released its next-generation Mi Servicio de Biblioteca WebFeat system (www.miserviciobiblioteca.org), enabling Southeast Floridians to simultaneously search key Spanish language information sources from a single intuitive interface.
"We are very excited to make this groundbreaking system available to our users," Tom Sloan, Executive Director of SEFLIN, "for the first time, our Spanish speaking community has a state-of-the-art information system designed specifically to meet their needs."
Mi Servicio de Biblioteca builds on SEFLIN's landmark MyLibraryService.org system, introduced last year. MyLibraryService.org enables users to access all 25 SEFLIN member library catalogs, plus selected other Web resources simultaneously, with a single search. Both MyLibraryService.org and MiServiciodeBiblioteca.org use the WebFeat Usage Tracker, "WUT", to track and report usage of all catalogs and information resources.
"We believe this is an important next step in the development of knowledge systems," said Todd Miller, Founder and CEO of WebFeat, "MiServiciodeBiblioteca.org demonstrates that WebFeat is a global solution, offering federated searching for all databases in all languages."
WebFeat is the developer of the remarkable, patent-pending WebFeat Prism, used by over 1,000 leading public, academic, and corporate libraries, including more than half of the top 20 U.S. public libraries. Other products include the WebFeat Usage Tracker (WUT) and the WebFeat Authentication Manager (WAM). Originally founded in 1992 as an information technology consultancy, WebFeat has earned industry recognition from leading organizations such as Gartner and Library Journal.
