Findit Integration in Quicksearch

The Quicksearch Implementation Team, working with a number of staff in Library IT, is beginning the integration of Findit in Quicksearch!  Two groups of stakeholders will initially vet plans for the integration of Findit – an ad-hoc group of Findit stakeholders, and the User Experience Advisory Group.  The integration of Findit will be based on queries against the Findit solr index.  Findit results will appear in Quicksearch in their own bento box, tentatively labeled “Digital Collections”.  An intermediary search results page will allow users to narrow their search using facets.  When a user clicks on an individual digital object title, they will go to the object page in the native Findit interface.   They can then use bread crumbs, full text searching, and other features that are native to Findit.  As has been the case with Orbis, Morris, and Articles+, the native Findit interface will still be available from the Library Front Door.  The project is estimated for completion in mid-late April.  A round of user studies will shortly follow the production implementation.
