Eric Lease Morgan, Digital Projects Librarian at Hesburgh Libraries, University of Notre Dame
This presentation will describe and demonstrate how the Catholic Research Resources Alliance has exploited the open and modular nature of VUFind to implement the "Catholic Portal". Specifically, we will show how we are using VUFind to aggregate metadata from remote locations/libraries, index archival finding aids (EAD files), harvest content from the Internet Archive, and facilitate text mining services against full text. VUFind is an exemplar "next-generation library catalog" application, and because of its design and flexibility we have been able to stand on its shoulders and push the definition of the library catalog a bit further. This presentation will elaborate on all of these ideas.
