The university search site has been redesigned. This high traffic site has long been central resource and is one of our most visited pages. After over a year of development the site has been redesigned to have a modern search experience and to incorporate search results from many different sources.
The site was rewritten to use the latest HTML5 APIs including the history api (making changing search results extremely fast). The site itself was designed using our new mobile templates and showcases how results can translate between desktops, tablets and phones. Our new search is powered by all new hardware which even further improves the site response rates.
Web site searches are the core of the university navigation. We have extended these searches to showcase results from other datasets. Websites are now crawled every night and old content is removed nightly as well.
Completely powered by the directory system used throughout the academic web sites, people search results now show photos in the search results. In addition, search results can be filtered by campus or by role.
The master calendar is now showcased within the search results and events can be returned as part of a web search or all by themselves.
West Plains and Mountain Grove now each have their own search site utilizing the same technologies as the Springfield campus search site.
