      Description

      The IEEE Xplore database offers an API that should allow the creation of a full-featured VuFind search backend. See documentation here:

      https://developer.ieee.org/docs/read/Searching_the_IEEE_Xplore_Metadata_API

      It may be useful to add this as a new option.

        Looks like a PHP library for using the API is available here:

        If we do build a VuFind integration, it would make sense to ask the vendor if this could be published as a Composer package to simplify integration.
