Intuitive document research
Our search engine integrates the habits acquired by internet users when they consult sites like Google or Wikipedia.
It can generate information noise, in that it will offer a result even if this does not correspond directly to the demand. It creates a hierarchy by placing the most relevant results first. It suggests words as the user types, and corrects spelling mistakes.
It acts as a faceted research engine, filtering and refining the list of results according to the user’s criteria.
Decalog OPAC automatically integrates complementary sources of information into the bibliographic record:
- videos from INA
- music from Amazon or MusicBrainz
- Wikipedia articles
- biographies, photos of authors etc
Our library catalogue interfaces data from different catalogues, ILSs or suppliers of records. Calls to available web services allow access to digital resources, to availability of copies and to the reader account.
An autonomous, easy-to-use system
The information in the catalogue is generated automatically, thanks to the content of the ILS and the enriched Internet excerpts. A content editor makes it possible to add information and links on the OPAC pages, with no specialised knowledge needed. Thus the library can, for example, show its location on a map, announce future events, or highlight a group of documents.
Decalog OPAC offers various graphic templates to present and organise sections. One template is particularly adapted for visually impaired users (based on recommendations by the French RGAA organisation – rules governing accessibility for visually impaired people).
An interface adapted for smartphones and new-generation tablets gives you the possibility of accessing your catalogue whoever you are, wherever you are.
