The University of Michigan University Libraries has gone live with a beta installation of vuFind, currently branded as "Mirlyn2-Beta" to differentiate it from our existing OPAC interface, Mirlyn. You can take a look at
We've added several enhancements:
- Spellcheck when there are no results (possible because we use a recent Solr nightly) -- try searching on 'minnesoa'
- Extraction of search specifications into an external file for easier tweaking
- Integration of UMich's "High Level Browse" subject headings (seen here as the "Academic Discipline" facet)
- Inlining of more extensive, real-time availability information in search results
- Reworked Refworks export
Any comments or bug reports can be sent to me or, even better, via the "Tell us what you think" button in the upper-right corner.
Thanks to everyone in all the various communities that have offered help and feedback!
