NELLCO Awarded Grant to Develop Universal Search Engine for Law Libraries
From the press release:
NELLCO, Inc., a non-profit consortium of 101 law libraries in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a significant grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the IMLS National Leadership Grants program. The grant award of $364,150.00 will aid NELLCO in funding a two-year project to develop a Universal Search Solution.
The NELLCO "Universal Search Solution" will be based on open standards and open source software, and will result in the creation of a physical master index of material, including participating library catalogs, as well as subscription-based databases and open content, special collections, and other resources that a participating library wishes to make discoverable to its patrons.
The idea for this project came from one of NELLCO's institutions, Franklin Pierce Law Center. [JH]
