The University's top-tier website will begin using a new search engine exclusively on September 7, 2010.
Those who manage their own websites, but who are linking to or embedding search code that submits search requests to the central UM web search will need to update their pages between September 7 and October 11, 2010. Click "How to Embed the New Search Into Existing Pages" for information on updating pages correctly.
No changes will affect visitors who browse the top-tier website. Visitors do not have to do anything new to access the upgraded search. The new search will seamlessly replace the existing search field that appears at the top of University Web pages. Visitors will only benefit from the new search results; the rest of the upgrade will be largely invisible to them.
Does this change affect the People Search or the Department Search?
No, the upgraded Web search does not affect the functionality of the people search or the department search.
