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 www.oplin.org/fal (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?
