Abstract

Purpose – Seeks to assess how new research and progress about how libraries and institutional web sites can adapt a range of distinct search tools using the portlet standards to achieve improved access. Design/methodology/approach – Locally integrated web search tools help users to navigate through web sites without needing to go to multiple sites. Findings – Search tools should be created with delivery via a portlet in mind. Compliance to CREE defined standards suggest good results as proven by several partners. This set of procedures suggests a very good future for locally integrated web search tools. Originality/value – Examples of experiences with different partners suggest rather remarkable promise for portlet standards that can be applied to searching web sites The CREE project has proven easy adapability and now a significant amount of testing and experience confirms the operations it can perform with the JSR 168 and WSRP portlet standards and other Java-based tools.
