The initial aim of the MetaLib Next Generation Advisory Group was to discuss the overall architecture of the MetaLib next generation, with a primary focus on the metasearch/federated search backend to improve MetaLib’s performance, also in the frame of Primo MetaSearch.
However in the meantime Ex Libris provided the MetaLib “current generation” with a Primo interface – known as MetaLib+. For the time being the efforts of Ex Libris are concentrated here, and the company has confirmed that they now see MetaLib+ as the “next generation” of MetaLib. As a result the Advisory Group has been wound up.
