Endeca at the NCSU Libraries

Purpose & History

Background:

The Libraries acquired Endeca ProFind software in May 2005. In anticipation of this acquisition, a Systems Department fellows project was assigned to Emily Lynema for 2005-2007 to work on Endeca implementation and integration with our Sirsi Unicorn catalog.

Charge:

The implementation group is charged to:
  • Review the documentation, software, and consult with Endeca implementation consultants to determine the range of issues associated with implementing Endeca ProFind
  • Work with Endeca QuickStart team on facilitating site visit to determine functional requirements to prepare their Technical Specifications document
  • Advise on integration and interface issues with Sirsi Unicorn
  • Facilitate librarywide review of interfaces; conduct usability testing
