BUFVC launches pioneering federated search environment

An innovative 'all-in-one' search engine allowing users to access nine online databases, containing more than 13 million records via a single entry point, has been launched today by the BUFVC and Royal Holloway, University of London (http://beta.bufvc.ac.uk).

The BUFVC federated search environment will allow users to easily view and filter collated results relating to film, television and radio content. The interactive online research tools offer:

•       ‘human-friendly’ result filters
•       intelligently generated ‘related records & searches’
•       user-friendly icons
•       a detailed user history
•       an export function.

The search environment will replace the need for researchers to locate databases and collections through multiple channels and enable creative discovery of content.

‘This unified search of all BUFVC's existing databases... [provides] a thoroughly tested user-friendly interface with many novel features. It not only finds unexpected material but also tells the user how close they are to obtaining the footage or radio material.’

John Ellis, Professor of Media Arts, Royal Holloway, University of London
