WebFeat Announces WebFeat 2 Technology

WebFeat (http://www.webfeat.org) has announced the release of its new WebFeat 2 technology, which lets libraries capture and report usage statistics from any or all of their databases' native interfaces. These statistics may be reported through WebFeat's Usage Tracker, in addition to usage captured through the WebFeat Knowledge Prism, WebFeat's federated search engine.

WebFeat Knowledge Prism allows libraries to simultaneously search all of their databases from a single intuitive interface. For every database used, WebFeat 2 captures and reports the number of queries, number of full record (full text) requests, number of next set requests, search strings (with Boolean operators), and date/time stamp information. WebFeat 2 can also track usage by individual library, branch, and remote users. Reports are available through the Web, which can be e-mailed, or downloaded into spreadsheets or DBMS programs. WebFeat 2 is available now for all new WebFeat systems and can be integrated into existing WebFeat systems at no additional charge for the next 90 days.

The company also announced that it will build proof-of-concept versions of its WebFeat Knowledge Prism search engine for libraries free of charge for a 30-day evaluation period.
