Will VuFind bring a new life to library OPACs?

Will it replace the traditional OPACs? Time will tell...

Roy Tennant has more on VuFind.

"VuFind is a library resource portal designed and developed for libraries by libraries. The goal of VuFind is to enable your users to search and browse through all of your library's resources by replacing the traditional OPAC to include:

  • Catalog Records
  • Digital Library Items
  • Institutional Repository
  • Institutional Bibliography
  • Other Library Collections and Resources
VuFind is completely modular so you can implement just the basic system, or all of components.
