I may present you the test version of gateway http/z39.50 and http/sru at:
You may enter the English version:
.) search SRU servers going to 'Other catalogs', then 'SRU Catalogs' check
one or all of them, then activate 'Simple Search' or 'Advanced Search'.
.) search both SRU servers together with other Z39.50 servers inserting them
in 'Personal' by checking them and selecting function 'Add', then repeat the
same with Z39.50 targets contained in other categories under 'Libraries',
and then in 'Personal' check the single servers and activate 'Simple Search'
or 'Advanced Search'.

Oggetto: Demo business case for search interoperability
As a next step following documentation of the requirements for search
interoperability ( http://www.search.gov/interop/requirements.html ),
I need to construct a simple demo showing what benefits one gets from
standardized search services. The task is to do a side-by-side compare
of information searching: "with a standard" versus "without a standard".
My immediate thought is to use a metasearch example, simply because
metasearching by definition has to interface with multiple search
service instances. Here, I would use one of the tools that takes
advantage of structured information in the result sets, to make the
point that merely aggregating full-text search is just a baby step.
Please do let me know of any canned demos you may have on the shelf,
or any ideas on how best to pitch this. (Of course, hard cost/benefit
data would be nice if you have that, too!)
