Your Opinion is Needed – Federated Search

Our online resources use what is called a federate search engine to search across a select group of databases. This is what you use if you go to our Databases A-Z page and enter a couple of key terms and select either a subject area or a group of databases.  The current federated search engine we are using is going away in December 2010.  In order to plan for the future we are considering doing away with this type of search.  If we did you would have to search each individual databases one at a time.  Please take the poll and let us know what you think.  Thank you.
