MOODy :) Investigations into Massive Open Online Discovery at IU
- Main contributors
Brown, Bryan; Hardesty, Juliet; McDonald, Courtney Greene
Libraries are interested in providing better, more comprehensive access to physical and digital collections, institutionally and collectively. Indiana University is improving its discovery tools with multiple projects in active development, using Blacklight as a primary interface for IUCAT (the online public catalog) and as an interface for a cross-collection search of digital objects from the library's digital repository. Blacklight, using Solr indexing for different types of collections, represents a potential means of enabling more seamless discovery across many data sources, including digital objects, catalog records and library website content. Courtney and Julie will discuss findings of a survey of academic and educational institutions engaged in similar Solr-based discovery/access projects and will also discuss combining large and distinct resource sets using Blacklight/Solr at IU, focusing on user experience and metadata/indexing perspectives.
