Federated search overview. I recently heard Roy Tennant tell a group of information professionals that “only librarians like to search, everyone else likes to find.” Roy should get together with Peter to combine his findability meme with this appropriate tagline.
In keeping with this findability theme, Tennant's describes some of the current offerings in the federated search space in his latest Digital Libraries column in Library Journal. This is an area that is hot with vendors in the information searching space right now. [ia/ – information architecture news]
