The first and only digital library for FirstClass
FC MEMEXTM is a FirstClass server extension which allows the integration of documents residing outside the FirstClass system. Documents of nearly any file format are automatically full text indexed. Based on this index database a powerful search engine allows to look for documents using a flexible query language or using the search wizards presented as FirstClass forms.
The search procedure is very easy to learn - anybody capable of using the FirstClass client can start searching inside digital libraries of any size.
This is the reason why one of the FC MEMEXTM customers paraphrased this RSWE solution as Google for FirstClass.
On the other hand experienced users can create advanced queries using more complex query language options. Please follow the topics presented on the left menu to get an overview of possibilities offered by the FC MEMEXTM product.
More than a search engine
FC MEMEXTM is more than a search engine for FirstClass. It offers compelling annotation and link options and helps to set documents in context to other documents, conferences, users or any addressable internet resource. An additional user rights management system ontop of the FirstClass privilege system allows the definition of library specific user roles. FC MEMEX allows the upload of new documents into existing library catalogs, too. This is provided by additional tools like the FC MEMEXTM browser, a tool no navigate in server side document collections. All clientside FC MEMEXTM functions only have one requirement: an already installed FirstClass client. That's it. No more, no less.
FC MEMEXTM is the perfect compagnion for educational FirstClass sites. Now these sites can offer powerful virtual library solutions inside their existing collaboration infrastructure. These libraries offer various advantages:
