Open Source Library Resource Discovery System
VuFind is an electronic resource portal designed and developed for
libraries by libraries. The goal of VuFind is to enable your users to
search and browse through all of your library's electronic resources.
VuFind uses common open source web application components, including the
Apache web server, PHP scripting language and MySQL database.
