I have begun to integrate swish-e and MyLibrary. See:
MyLibrary is a portal application for libraries distributed as open source
software. Written in Perl and relying on a database application such as
MySQL, it provides the means for librarians to create lists of information
resources and allow users to create customizable interfaces to the
As the collections of information resources in something like MyLibrary grow
so does the need for a searchable interface. Building on the examples
provided in the swish-e distribution, I was able to extract a stream of HTML
from MyLibrary and send it directly to swish-e for indexing. I was then able
to provide a Web interface to the resulting index as illustrated and
described at the URLs above.
I like swish-e. I like it a whole lot. Thank you.
