Cat About Sourcecode

Who helped out?

  • Rosalie Lingo created the site's graphics and color scheme. Rosalie also provided invaluable guidance on Find It's layout and design.
  • The many contributors to Project Blacklight provided the backbone of Find It's code, and helpful voices on the Blacklight Development Group provided helpful implementation tips.
  • Wayne Schneider and Phil Feilmeyer made their very informative solr indexing scripts publicly available.
  • Countless contributors added cover images and control numbers to the OpenLibrary project, which is how Find It incorporates cover images into its interface. Michelle Lanae Walker, Rusly Marzuki, and Jane Sandberg have been the major LBCC contributors to this project.
