At the University of York, the Digital Library (YODL) have committed to using Fedora as the repository for preservation of its digital content. Our requirements for storing rich multimedia content along with the need to apply a diverse set of access control policies had initially lead us to trial Muradora for the search and access interface. For a number of reasons, we are now moving to a new interface, being developed in house during 2010 to replace our current Muradora-based interface. This paper presents our requirements, design decisions and challenges faced implementing the new search interface – YODL2, focusing on the image search aspect of our multimedia repository.
