RE: Help!!!!!!

The following article from the October 1 issue of Library Journal might be a
good place to start:


Also, the Illinois Library Computer Systems Organization (ILCSO) has an
RFP out looking for various digital library software products (including
metasearch engines). For some more details, see:


ILCSO has 65 members, mostly Illinois academic libraries.

Can someone point me to a summary of the activities at research libraries
to create meta-search engines?  I am interested in learning how extensive
this activity is, whether the development is being done by the
institutions themselves or by integrating third-party search tools, where
this puts Google (and the forthcoming Longhorn) in the scheme of things,
and what were the libraries' motivation to get involved with this
undertaking (which I imagine to be non-trivial, as the Valley geeks say).

Thank you for your help.
