We use Serials Solutions to manage our databases on the backend. For our
website A-Z and category browse, custom PHP scripts use the XML API to
generate HTML pages for individual entries and the various lists -- a
cron job refreshes the content daily. Our university used to offer a
Google search appliance that would regularly index the directory for
search, but they discontinued it, so we purchased a subscription to
Google site search. Here's our A-Z databases list

We'd like to do something that looks more modern and is far more user friendly. I found a great article in the Code4Lib journal (issue 12, by Danielle Rosenthal& Mario Bernado) about building a searchable A to Z list using Drupal. I'm also wondering what other institutions have done as far as in-house solutions. I know there're products we could buy, but, like everyone else, we don't have much money at the moment.
