SWISH-E stands for Simple Web Indexing System for Humans - Enhanced. It is used to index collections of documents ranging up to one million documents in size and includes import filters for many document types.

SWISH-E is based on SWISH, developed by Kevin Hughes. When Kevin Hughes stopped maintaining it, Roy Tennant (then at the University of California, Berkeley Library) requested in the mid-1990s to take responsibility for developing it further as a web indexing tool. Hughes assented, and for several years afterwards UC Berkeley Library staff developers and other volunteers maintained and enhanced it. It is now maintained by a team of volunteers.
