Economical Discovery-like Search for Library Automation

SRF Express is a Low-Maintenance, Easy to Use, and Inexpensive “Discovery -like” Search Layer embedded in your Library Automation Service

TYPE or PASTE text (up to 100,00 characters) into ANY of these working Search boxes, then click the Search button:

These three working search examples use simple HTML or JavaScript code you embed in your web pages. Each example uses Search Site Databases in our  Texas Library SRF Express subscription demo as well as our Public Library, Business News, and US Government demo database collections seen on our main website:

  • Search Real Fast builds and maintains ALL custom Search Site Database connector URLs for hundreds of public as well as each of your Libraries’ specific subscription and catalog search sites – Neither you nor your customers have to deal with creation  or maintenance of these URL connectors.
  • Search Real Fast creates and maintains a separate subscription record for each of your library customers under your Group subscription.
  • Each subscription record holds the list of Search Site Databases we maintain and your user sees in their SRF Express application screen.
  • Each database search URL is constructed  and sent from each user’s browser directly to that particular database.
  • The search results from each database are returned directly to that user’s browser, speeding delivery while eliminating discovery web server setup and indexing!
  • Search Real Fast supplies simple HTML or JavaScript code you embed in your web screens for each library.
  • Each Library’s SRF Express application screen lists five to 10 Search Site Databases they choose and their users may query in parallel or individually.
  • The top five to ten keywords may be used to automatically display results for that Library’s Catalog search and additional search sites in separate browser tabs.
  • After you paste or type in text into a search box, the same text appears in the entry field when you change database buttons.
  • Even after a database button is used for a search, when the user returns to their SRF Express search box using their browser Back-Arrow, the same text remains for another database button selection and search.
