Rob Casson of Miami University beta availability of their video catalog. In a subsequent posting, Rob . Rob and the crew at Miami are seeking feedback on the interface, so if you have some be sure to offer it to them.the
A couple of notes on the mechanisms Rob is using. Apache Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library (also an Apache project). You can think of Lucene as the raw indexing and search engine with Solr layered on top to provide a non-Java interface to a rich feature set. What Miami has done is extract all of the bibliographic and related item records out of their Innovative Interface system, written programs to transform that data into XML, indexed it with Solr/Lucene and created a search interface.
