Modules for Libraries

Search

Our search engine provides advanced search functions!

The system allows complex search within locally aggregated and external metadata and fulltext contents. It makes use of intelligent filters, automatic text completion, and even sorting by relevance is possible. We display the document in different formats and it can be downloaded on demand.The search engine is easily adapted to any standard, integrated public collection system or repository. With the help of the search module further possibilities are available. For example reader (booking, renewal, stock request etc.) and printing funcions. Electronic resources can also be linked to the particular content. On request, additional, record related functions can be built into our search engine, too.

Discovery

Would you like to search among your own contents and third party scientific contents through the same interface?

Keresőmodulunk lehetővé teszi, hogy egy helyen listázza saját tartalmait, és más szolgáltatók adatbázis elemeit, így akár az előfizetett tartalmak között is böngészhet saját keresőfelületén.

Our Discovery module makes it possible to list the elements of your own contents and those of a choosen third party, thus allowing you to browse among the contents you subscribed for at your own interface.The system can be configured and customized according to your needs! At our search interface, we make open access contents available, too. Integration of the search engine with the EBSCO system has already been completed; it is in progress with the Proquest system and we gladly cooperate with other content owners and aggregators, too. Besides the display of metadata sets, we also provide access to specific electronic resources in our Discovery module.

Aggregator

Would you like to create a common database together with your partner institutions?

Our aggregator software is able to integrate the heterogeneous databases (metadata and digital contents) of different institutions into one single database. Besides the data being consistently manageable in a shared context, they will still be identifiable individually in their original environment.The aggregator makes it possible for more institutions to have a single search interface and common website displaying all the relevant contents, in one place. The system can act as an intermediate aggregator, serving other aggregators or portals, like Europeana. To have a look at some examples of the opearation of our aggregator, please visit our MuseuMap solution or the Krakkow region museum portal, which can be found among our references.

Semantics

Would you like to make the search in your collection easier?

Our module transforms local metadata into semantic format and connects them to trusted, public open namespaces. Our search system handles every item of metadata recorded about public collection and scientifical data elements as real content, and with the help of the built-in links, it can easily connect metadata – making the search easier for users. One possibility for the higher-level use of the system is to join the ALIADA (Automatic Publication under Linked Data Paradigm of Library Data) project.

Interlibrary Loan

Are you looking for a system suitable for managing inter-library loan services?

Our integrated systems support inter-library requests; they are prepared to upload data to the national document supply and inter-library systems.

In addition, we offer our inter-library solution, too, which can be used at a local, regional or international levels: you can see an example among our references – the system used in a Hungarian-Slovakian library cooperation.

API

Would you like to integrate your existing system with new components?

The standard programming interfaces, connecting large, complex systems or used by customized smaller applications allow us to integrate external components into them without knowing the internal operational details of the systems.

Thus, it is possible, for example, to integrate an electronic catalogue (OPAC) with our integrated public collection systems, or to integrate Qulto® solutions with 3rd party softwares and services, and with open source components.
