reSearcher is an award-winning integrated suite of open source tools for locating and managing electronic information resources, designed for use by students and researchers in academic libraries. The three main modules of reSearcher are:
- GODOT, a fulltext linkserver and interlibrary loan requesting system
- Citation Manager, a tool for capturing, managing and exporting bibliographic data in a wide range of formats
- dbWiz, a cross-database search tool
reSearcher enables academic libraries to provide students and researchers with streamlined access to an integrated array of information resources. Together, reSearcher’s components deliver rich portal-type functionality, presenting a unified interface to research databases, library and union catalogues, internet search engines, and other electronic information sources.
reSearcher is developed by Simon Fraser University Library for the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL). reSearcher is used daily by students, faculty, and staff in universities, colleges, university-colleges and institutes throughout Western Canada.
