Federated Search Symposium at the University of Calgary

I had announced this symposium in a post in early December 2005.

The Supreme Court library is looking into federated search (the sending of a single query to a group of disparate databases). We will be implementing SingleSearch from Sirsi in the spring.

The Distant Librarian who was able to attend has posted a fairly lengthy Federated Search Symposium wrap-up.

Speakers included Roy Tennant from the California Digital Library, Cathy Gordon from Google Scholar, and librarians who have installed federated search tools such as Central Search (Serials Solutions), AGent Portal (Auto-Graphics), MetaLib (ExLibris) and WebFeat (Consolidated Searching).
