The Keystone Library Network is implementing a WebFeat Enterprise Edition federated search solution. For 17 participating libraries, including 14 Pennsylvania State System universities, the WebFeat Enterprise Edition solution enables users at each library to simultaneously search a group of shared resources provided by KLN in addition to simultaneously searching the individual library's locally subscribed resources. 10 of the KLN libraries' WebFeat systems will be able to simultaneously search in excess of 100 resources each -either from within the library or remotely. Each participating library will customize and brand their WebFeat interfaces for seamless integration with individual library web pages.

Participating KLN libraries include: Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania; California University of Pennsylvania; Cheyney University of Pennsylvania; Clarion University of Pennsylvania; East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania; Edinboro University of Pennsylvania; Geneva College, Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania; Harrisburg University of Science and Technology; Indiana University of Pennsylvania; Kutztown University of Pennsylvania; Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania; Mansfield University of Pennsylvania; Millersville University of Pennsylvania; Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania; Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania; State Library of Pennsylvania; and West Chester University of Pennsylvania.
