Title:A Comparison of Searching Functionality of a VuFind Catalogue Implementation and the Traditional Catalogue
Author(s):Skinner, Debra G.
Subject(s):Next-Generation Discovery and Access
Library Catalogs
Abstract:As of spring semester 2010, Georgia Southern University began using a VuFind implementation as the default access to the library catalogue on the library Web page while maintaining a secondary link to the traditional Voyager “classic” catalogue. VuFind is an opensource product that has been adopted and adapted by all the state universities and colleges in the state of Georgia. For approximately ten years, Georgia libraries have used Voyager as their catalogue, and it remains available to users as the “classic” search option. This report examines the local VuFind implementation compared to the more traditional Voyager implementation, emphasizing the differences in the searching capabilities of each.
