  • Blacklight

  • Blacklight is a free and open source ruby-on-rails based discovery interface (a.k.a. “next-generation catalog”) especially optimized for heterogeneous collections. You can use it as a library catalog, as a front end for a digital repository, or as a single-search interface to aggregate digital content that would otherwise be siloed.

  • AquaBrowser

  • A "discovery layer" that provides a fresh, modern interface for patrons of varied backgrounds to use independently. By providing a simple interface with a single search box, patrons are able to quickly find relevant results when they need them. A fully hosted, subscription-based solution, AquaBrowser 3 significantly enhances service quality with minimal impact on a library’s resources. It’s a sure ally in the library’s mission to serve its community, especially during times of increased usage and reduced funding. »

  • Enterprise

  • Imagine a search that isn’t deterred by misspellings or human error. Where results populate in “rooms” based on content categories or themes. Imagine a search that not only spans the physical library contents, but newswires, databases and multimedia. Where the exact thing you’re searching for is displayed side-by-side with user-generated reviews and external ratings. Imagine a search where you never get a blank screen or dead-end results. And this is just the beginning.
