Unique Web 2.0 Discover Layer

The EvolvePlus ILS Solution, incorporating the the VuFind Discovery Layer, enables libraries to provide patrons with a unique web 2.0 experience often missing in traditional library system OPACs.

Your Users Need More than a Catalogue

How are your users going to wade through the mountains of  resources available to them to find that invaluable piece of  content that makes or breaks their research?

Better yet, how will they find it again, and how will they share it with others?

Contemporary libraries need state-of-the-art software to make their collections and services visible and attractive to web users accustomed to the one-stop-shopping aspects of  Google and the customer-oriented features of  commercial sites such as Amazon.

VuFind, an open-source resource discovery portal developed for libraries by libraries, has harnessed the power of contemporary Web search technology that enables users to query and browse the library’s resources in a simple yet sophisticated manner.
