Cool catalog interface/engine

NCSU just unveiled last week the new interface to their catalog. http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/news/libraries.php?p=1998&more=1.

I think they are either Sirsi or Dynix but they are using Endeca to power the searching. I wonder how that works? And how does it interface with the ILS? Very interesting.

the catalog is at: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/catalog/

I have some reservations about the number of options. We've been headed towards a cleaner interface but still...

They also have a nice interface to their e-resources. I like the narrower/broader distinction in their related dbases list.
