blacklight exposed

I see that Bess has posted about her exciting Project Blacklight, where she worked with Erik Hatcher on developing an experimental interface for our MARC records. Props are also due to Chris Hoebeke for working with them on the data and mapping fields and subfields to the facets.

It's not a full replacement for our catalog yet, but it's exceptionally promising. There's a real buzz here about it, not just because it's cool, but because it started under the radar but has gone on to capture the attention of folks across the Library. Check it out.
