Version 1.4 of VuFind, a leading open-source discovery interface, has just been released. Andornot recommends VuFind as a great tool for integrating content from library catalogues and other databases and making it searchable with features and tools users expect from a web interface, such as:

  • spelling corrections and "did you mean?" suggestions of alternate terms and records;
  • facets, such as subject and author, to quickly refine a search;
  • options to save, email, bookmark and share searches and results; and
  • integrated content from external sources, such as book covers, reviews, and author biographies.

With version 1.4, a new "collections" feature makes VuFind an excellent choice for a discovery interface for archival and similar collections where information is arranged hierarchically (e.g. fonds, series, item, etc.).

These are two excellent examples of hierarchical collections within a VuFind system:

More information about VuFind is available from this page and the VuFind website.

Contact Andornot to discuss how a discovery interface can provide the best search experience and features for your users, no matter what type of information it includes.
