Pikes Peak NewsFinder

PPLD required a means to catalog and access local community news and obituary articles. DSoft Technology performed system planning, architecture, database design, and development work for the PPLD Special Collections Pikes Peak NewsFinder public web site. This site contains a secure administrative functionality to enter and modify article headlines, subjects, people, and keywords. Combining state-of-the-art search algorithms and relational database design, we maximized performance using basic and power search dynamic queries. PPLD's Special Collections group (in the 1905 Carnegie Library) indexing project provides essential information needed to access the news article or obituary desired.
