"Give me one box to access our electronic resources," -- The Pioneering Google Search Appliance Beta Test (OBS)
Coordinator: Kathleen D. Fletcher

Federated searching once seemed to be "the answer" for libraries that wanted to provide "one search box" access to all their electronic resources. However, when a team of librarians from the Franklin Pierce Law Center Library investigated purchasing a federated searching product, they found all to be very expensive and sorely lacking. In the summer of 2005, the Franklin Pierce Law Center Library, with the backing of NELLCO, began a beta test of a "Google Search Appliance." Several vendors, including HeinOnLine and LLMC Digital, agreed to participate in the beta test with Pierce Law. At this program, a member of the Pierce Law One Box Implementation Team, Jerry DuPont from LLMC Digital and Hans Marquardt from Google will report on the success of the test. Participants will learn about a Google Search Appliance - how it works; what time, talents, and tenacity are required to install it; and how this new frontier of searching affects law librarianship.

H-4: Tuesday, July 11, 4:00-5:00 p.m.
