About the XC Demo
CARLI's XC demo site is available at http://xc-demo.carli.illinois.edu. The server is running the latest versions of the XC OAIToolkit, XC MST, and XC Drupal Interface and provides a showcase of what the XC software does right now, in its current state. Many features that might appear as if they don't work haven't been built yet. We will be updating the site periodically, as newer code becomes available. Users may sign on to CARLI's xc-demo site with the generic username/password demo/demo to see a basic outline of the MyAccount page that is under development.
The data that is searchable from the demo site consists of bib records extracted from the UIUdb in early summer 2011. The XC NCIP2 Toolkit is not installed so holdings data will not display at this time, although visitors will see a small icon spinning as if holdings data are imminent. As development on XC continues, CARLI will be pointing the XC demo site to a Voyager test server so that holdings data can be displayed. We will also be loading additional libraries' bib data so that we can begin to see how XC will work in a consortial environment.
Programmers who are interested in contributing code to any of the XC toolkits should visit the eXtensible Catalog web site at http://www.extensiblecatalog.org/ for more information.
