    Maybe it needs more Jaunter Lucien too? Stanford recently went live with it. http://www.jaunter.com/

    I have found that some of the suggestions that the Koha Zoom OPAC offers on misspellings are strange, but some of them are right on. Hopefully that is something that will improve over time.

    Keep an eye out for Phoenix Public Library’s new OPAC (should be coming out in a few weeks) – it will run on Endeca which is used by many retail folks. Best of all, it corrects misspellings & doesn’t require you to search under archaic subject headings such as cookery.

    Have found your blog interesting in the past, but the Nelsonville Public Library caught my attention. Decades ago I was the librarian at Nelsonville-York Junior High –my first library and I loved it.

    I’ve been watching Nelsonville for years now– it took a bit of courage to go with Koha and open source, and look at the results. In the age of “Your OPAC sucks”, you sure cannot say that about Nelsonville!

    You’re not kidding, that’s the finest OPAC I’ve seen … I think ever :-). The spellchecker is pretty good, though not as good as google. I really like the fact you can sort by popularity, and I love the facets on the left when you do a search.
