I am experimenting with a new retrieval system for the finding aids and possibly digital images. It is open source from the fine people at California Digital Library. So far, I have indexed all the EAD encoded finding aids and am currently working to test some TEI files. Full-text indexing is based on the Lucene engine and relevancy algorithm. I am very pleased with its retrieval functionality and display features.
The test system is fully functional and utilizes a complete copy of our existing NYPL data, available for your exploration.
