OCLC SiteSearch Open Source Project Forum to be held at the 2002 ALA
Midwinter Conference in New Orleans, LA.
Date: Saturday, January 19, 2002
Time: 1:30 - 3:00 pm
Location: Embassy Suites, Lafitte II
OCLC SiteSearch software will be demonstrated and the open source project
will be discussed. This forum invites current as well as interested new
users to attend and discover how they can participate.
A FREE download will give you the tools to:
* Offer a virtual catalog that brings a region's resources together without
replicating catalog records
* Create unique web resources with the material only your library has -
everything from community information to digital objects, including sound
and video files
OCLC will make the full java source code to SiteSearch, along with
supporting documentation, available as an open source project by the end of
first quarter of 2002. The code will be freely available to any person or
institution for non-commercial purposes only. The SiteSearch open source
community will determine the future direction of the product and control the
design of the software to meet rapidly changing needs.
