MassLNC Sets Its Sights on Search Enhancements

MassLNC has begun the process of finding developers to work on search enhancement projects for Evergreen. These projects include an alphabetical author, title and subject browse for the catalog; a linear staff-friendly call number browse; a synonym list for search terms; support for using traditional Boolean operators in a search; and a simple method for excluding electronic resources from search results.

Proposals are due by 5 p.m. (EST) on Monday, November 26. Any questions should be directed to MassLNC Project Coordinator Kathy Lussier at klussier@masslnc.org. Answers to questions regarding scope or approach will also be posted on the page for that particular project so that everyone can benefit from the same information. 

MassLNC would love to hear feedback on these enhancements from other Evergreen libraries. Any questions or comments from the larger community can also be directed to Kathy Lussier.
