Otago Uni Library ditches Hakena search engine

A search engine called Hakena used by the Hocken Library at Otago University is set to be replaced.

Hakena provides access to unpublished manuscripts and archives in the library. However, the system has not been used to manage the 14,000 paintings and one million photographs documented in separate databases.

According to request for information documents, Hakena is outdated and does not support the functions expected from a modern system. Staff and students want a user friendly system with Google-style searching.

Hocken’s published collections are managed by a system called Voyager so the new system will have to link to the library’s bibliographic database.

The deadline for replies is Friday, November 6. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 27546.
