Sefton, Peter M.
MetadataShow full item record
The Fascinator is an Apache Solr front end to the Fedora commons repository. This project was originally funded by ARROW, as part of the mini project scheme. The Fascinator is written in Java. It drops into the Tomcat server that comes with Fedora. There are two ways this software can be used. It can be used as a server to deliver one or more portals with faceted searching and browsing or as an (experimental) desktop tool for managing eResearch assets and synchronising them with other repositories.
