'From topic to text': The evolution of reSearcher,
an integrated open source software project.

-- October 14, 2004 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm

Created to fill the need for "topic to text" library research software, reSearcher consists of a developing meta-searching component (dbWiz), a fully-functional OpenURL link resolver (Godot/CUFTS), and a web-based bibliographic management tool (Citation Manager). This presentation will provide an update on the project, focusing on the maturity of the link resolver and the benefits of the open source model.
