NCSU Joins faceted navigation

It's great to see faceted search/navigation being implemented in an University Library. (via ACRLog). Conragulations to NCSU team having the vision and choosing this technology. Today's search results are not enough, we need to help users to refine the results in a intelligent way. NCSU is using Endeca . Another company to watch in this market is Siderean. In Engineering Village we are using FAST technology to provide faceted navigation/search. Another great example of this technlology is Flamenco Search at Berkeley by Prof. Marti Hearst. Any search company and information or e-commerce product which is not using this technology is missing the boat.
