Introducing Rebus:list, VuFind and WordPress for libraries – a seminar
12th October 2012 | Events
This seminar will introduce and showcase several further products which are now being supported and promoted by PTFS Europe.
Rebus:list – the new reading list management system recently released by PTFS Europe. Based on a comprehensive review of the current systems available, Rebus:list offers a significant advance in the effective management of the entire workflow involved in the delivery and presentation of reading lists.
VuFind – a resource discovery capability that can be used to provide a single point of access to a wide range of information sources. The resources that can be harvested include your library catalogue, digital archives, institutional repositories and a wide range of other resources. Records are harvested from the various resources needed and then indexed using the SOLR search engine. Users can then search these multiple resources with a single search.
WordPress for libraries – a content management system that can be integrated with library management and discovery systems to provide the library’s entire web presence.
The agenda will include:
- An overview and demonstration of Rebus:list
- User presentations on their experiences with Rebus:list
- An outline of the VuFind discovery portal and its implementation
- A look at how WordPress can be used in the library context
