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!
