TTW Mailbox: Using Google Co-op in Ohio

Using Google Co-op

Joel Husenits, Managing Editor at the Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN), writes:

The Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN) is using Google Co-op to power a search engine that searches all 251 Ohio public library websites. You can check it out at (we folded it into our existing “Find an Ohio Library” site). We thought other states and/or library systems might be interested in examples of localized custom search tools.

Thanks Joel. I did some sample searches, including the above for “blogs.” Seems fluid and friendly. Nice! Have other libraries adopted this technology?
