Videos@MU Facebook App

Friends/

Today's Episode:

Rob Casson, Computing Information Services Specialist, Miami University (Ohio) has developed a Facebook App that provides access to the Videos@MU, library's video catalog.

A proof-of-concept. Queries a Solr index of Miami University videos.

BTW: "Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library, with XML/HTTP and JSON APIs, hit highlighting, faceted search, caching, replication, and a web administration interface. It runs in a Java servlet container such as Tomcat."

To Quote Rob:

"Let me know if you'd be interested in the source...it's nothing too difficult, but you would have to have a Solr index to query."

Thanks !!! Rob!!!
