The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has updated its library catalogue with the Andornot Discovery Interface (AnDI).
As with another recent AnDI project for the Canadian Conservation Institute, the CRTC library needed to ensure its library catalogue interface met current standards for web accessibility, as well as incorporating the Government of Canada’s common look and feel for websites, and offering an interface in both official languages. The library catalogue had been available online for some time, but not in a format that met accessibility requirements. Without a change, the catalogue would have to be removed from the internet.
The Andornot Discovery Interface was the perfect choice for meeting these requirements with a new search interface. It offers:
- Fast, relevancy-based keyword search results;
- spelling corrections and did-you-mean suggestions of alternate terms;
- faceted browsing to easily narrow down results;
- hit-highlighting showing search words in context;
- full-text indexing and searching; and
- tools for saving and sharing records.
The CRTC library continues to use DB/TextWorks to manage the collection. Data is automatically exported with the Andornot Data Extraction Utility for indexing in AnDI.
