Ovid Debuts New Search Tool

By LJ Staff

Ovid Technologies is now marketing SearchSolver, its next-generation federated search tool. The company told LJ the product combines searching and linking capabilities to present results in a simple web-based format similar to Google. Users also can combine it with Ovid LinkSolver, the company’s OpenURL link resolver, ‘to create an end-to-end solution.’

Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden has selected Sirsi’s Unicorn as its automation solution. The system is being installed on a Windows server and will provide access to the iLink e-Library and the modules for cataloging and interlibrary loan, among others. The installation also includes the SmartPort Z39.50 cataloging utility.
