LibX Updated for Solr

Last week FCLA replaced the search technology behind our OPAC. The new open source Solr seems to be working well and is expected to save money over licensing the commercial product Endeca. Unfortunately it broke our Libx plug-in and the other liaisons have quite clear that they want it fixed. I am pleased to say that this has been resolved. If all works properly, your browser should alert you to the new update but, if not, you can get it from the links to the right. So go get it and start searching.

We found an issue with the last libx update that would not allow multiple word search entries. This has been fixed for the UNF search but not for the Union Catalog. Another update will be pushed to get this working.
