Sirsi Selects MuseGlobal to Power SingleSearch Plug-Ins

Sirsi Corp. has announced that MuseGlobal technology will be incorporated in the release of Sirsi SingleSearch, version 2, a multiprotocol search technology that allows users to search multiple network-accessible information resources simultaneously from a single interface. Version 2 includes broadcast search functionality from the MuseSearch product, including connectors, which will enable Sirsi SingleSearch to maintain reliable access to the thousands of resources that are searchable within the system.

Available in the first quarter of 2003, Sirsi SingleSearch, version 2 will be available for Sirsi's iBistro, iLink, and Web2 user interface systems. The product will also provide key broadcast search functionality for Sirsi's soon-to-be launched context management solution.

Sirsi SingleSearch will provide access to nearly 5,000 free and licensed information services, including library catalogs, Internet search engines, and commercial abstract and index databases using Z39.50, XML, HTTP, SQL, and a number of other protocols. MuseGlobal will ensure that current source connectors remain up-to-date and reliable, while also developing new connectors to accessible resources in demand by Sirsi libraries and library users. Sirsi's partnership with MuseGlobal provides two notable solutions in search technology: merged results and advanced multiprotocol searching.
