Updated web search went live Aug. 27

The updated K-State web search went live Wednesday, Aug. 27. K-State Search can be accessed by going directly to search.k-state.edu, using the search box at the top of the K-State homepage, or webpages that have the search box in the K-State brandbar.  New aspects include:

  • K-State students can now control and selectively omit some of their personal information displayed from People Directory search results.  Many students had asked for this ability, which is controlled through their eProfile.
  • Improvement of webpage search results has been achieved by moving to the Google Search Appliance.
  • The format uses standard K-State page format and tabs for viewing search results by category (web, people, directories).  See the Aug. 19 Spotlight article for more about the new search engine’s look and feel.
