Abstract: Lucidea announced the upcoming release of Argus.net version 4.3, scheduled for November 28, 2014. Version 4.3 of Argus.net features a new faceted search function that returns relevant results without drop downs or multiple search boxes. Faceted search allows museums to offer users an efficient tool that enables both targeted search and expanded discovery of collection content, with ease of use similar to other familiar online applications, such as Amazon shopping. It makes searching museum collections easier and faster, and allows users either to search with great precision or expand their results based on their own preferences.
