Farewell Yufind: LibraryIT to retire beta service in October

The Enterprise Systems & Architecture group would like to announce that LibraryIT is retiring YuFind, the Yale University Library VuFind beta service. The link http://yufind.library.yale.edu/ will no longer be available after October 31st, 2014. Patron use was discontinued of some time ago and support for the service ceased in 2013.

Yufind was the one of the Library’s first forays into using an interface with facets and run off of a Solr index, and the lessons learned from this beta project have also informed the development of the Blacklight-powered Quicksearch beta, which also uses a central Solr index. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact raymond dot frohlich at yale dot edu.
