The Holy Grail – Google for Libraries

SerialSolutions is developing a new product that claims to be the “Google for Libraries” that we’ve all been describing in our wildest dreams.  And from what the beta demo shows, they are getting very close.  The key is pre-harvested data for speed, and a system built from the ground up to meet demands, instead of layered on top of vendor search mechanisms, as federated searching does.

    Wow, realize a beta demo/promo, but very impressive. Agree re wild dream. Wildest dream will be reasonably affordable for public library and/or state cooperative purchase.
