OPAC Front Ends

Mar - 30 - 2006

A member of the Web4Lib list asked this question:

I and a colleague are interested in alternative web OPAC front end systems such as the aquabrowser ( ). We’d like to write an article on the topic, exploring the pros and cons. So far, I know about Aquabrowser, endeca ( ) and Casy Bissons Wpopac (which isn’t commercial, but I would still consider it a “competitor” of sorts). Does anyone know of any other products/competitors?

He is compiling a list on for those of us who want to see the options that are out there.

One Response so far.

    Please write if I can help with your research on AquaBrowser or Endeca. TLC recently updated our AquaBrowser site with a bibliography you might find useful. It’s posted at If you’d like specific names and numbers of customers to contact, just let me know. Please let your readers know that is a test site–the public KCLS site you should bookmark is Our work with Phoenix PL on their Endeca implementation is under construction, but I can tell you about progress there too. -Jimmy Thomas
