Where do we go next?

As the system approaches an acceptable level of stability, greater attention can be given to addressing the issues highlighted by users who have experienced difficulty quickly identifying the information that matters to them. To facilitate this, a final user interface theme is currently in production which it is hoped will show case the information users have requested

Longer-term, the big issue is sustainability. The SWWHEP team which has developed and implemented iFind Discover will be moving on to other things next year, and so support of the new catalogue will pass to staff at Swansea University library. First-line support has already passed to the library systems team, and discussions are now underway for IT staff to take over support of the server (Swansea has an integrated library and IT service, which makes these things much smoother than they could otherwise be!).
