Discovery and Federation services


(Satish P) #1

Hi,

At present, we have a third party Federation services which does online search with various e-resources subscribed by Libraries thro' the platform. It does not store any index or data with it. It is a live search via HTTP/XML/HTTPS protocols.

I would like to know whether Elastic Search does something like this?

Similar, yes!

Can I see something via a demo or a link?

What do you want to see exactly?

Hello Mark,

I would like to see how Elastic Search will help us to search thro' E-resources (Journals / Books / Catalog / Repository) at the same time.

https://www.elastic.co/use-cases/guardian is one example.

Hello Mark,

Can you pls open this URL and do search? .... Note that it does not store any data in the back end database... It does search on fly with live content coming from native websites...

What would be the purpose of that?


(Satish P) #9

At present, we have licensed this Federation services from a vendor and now we want to move on open source services which can help us with our requirements

You can use Elasticsearch to create a search service like the one linked to, but you will need to index the data into Elasticsearch.
