Siris Cross Catalog Searching

Jeffrey cited the interface of the Lucene/Solr-powered Siris Cross Catalog Searching.

SIRIS stands for Smithsonian Institution Research Information System.

Solr "is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library, with XML/HTTP and JSON APIs, hit highlighting, faceted search, caching, replication, and a web administration interface. It runs in a Java servlet container such as Tomcat. See the complete feature list for more details, then check out the tutorial." There are several sessions on Lucene/Solr offered at the Apache Convention, Monday-Friday, Nov. 12-16, 2007, in Atlanta.
