VuFind: the open source OPAC 2.0

It has been released the Next-Gen library catalog browser, VuFind, open source code under the GPL and hosted on Sourceforge.

Currently out of the box the software works with the Voyager catalog, but the developing team at Villanova University Library is working on adding additional drivers to work with more ILS, comprising Evergreen and Koha.

VuFind is currently in a beta stage of development but probably all necessary functionality will be completed by the end of the summer and it’ll have a stable production release by the Fall semester.

Interesting features are the facets to refine search results, the tagging system, the possibility to add reviews and notes to the records and cite them, the availability infos inside the record itself, the similar items and many more. You can check them out at the live demo of VuFind.

Have a look and try the software at

    Thank you very much, Tobias: grat job! Also, the idea of the Amazon certificate is very cool :) I’m very interested in results…
    A question: why in the second part of the test there are some sort of psychological sentences? (“the weather is good”; “I’m tense” etc.)
