University web search service

For some years Information Services has provided a University-wide web search service that allows users both within the University and elsewhere to search for information on over 1000+ web sites operated by the University. Additionally, the service can be used to provide facilities for searching within individual sites, avoiding the need for webmasters to set up separate facilities for searching just their own servers. Authenticated users can view search results including pages that are for University-access only.

The interface (http://search.cam.ac.uk/) searches University web servers, the Reporter and Google by default. For logged-in Raven-authenticated users it also searches pages restricted by IP address to clients on the the University Network (which may also be available by Raven authentication from outside), the University Lookup service and the user's home institution and adds extra features: suitably authorised users (institutional editors in Lookup) can set up their own search filters and can add 'Quicklinks' - links returned for searches with specific popular keywords.

Webmasters (and web content providers) of web sites operated by the University are the primary audience of these documents, which detail use of features.
