Google Custom Search Engine

The University of Texas at Austin uses Google's Custom Search Engine (CSE) for its main search functionality.

In addition to the UT Google Custom Search Engine, numerous other sites on campus have site-specific searches. The University also has an alphabetic index of offices helpful for locating pages on the UT Web. If you have questions about the UT search functionality contact TeamWeb.

I am a web publisher on campus, how do I use or customize the Google Custom Search Engine on my site?

Instructions for creating your own instance of the Google Custom Search Engine on your site or using the University's CSE instance can be found on the Web Pub wiki (EID Protected).

How can I search a particular directory or host within the utexas.edu domain?

If you want to limit your search to a particular directory or host within the utexas.edu domain, use Google's inurl operator. For example if you want to search for the phrase "gutenberg bible" only within the hrc.utexas.edu sub-domain, enter inurl:hrc.utexas.edu "gutenberg bible". Similarly, if you want to search for the word scholarships, but only within the student directory on www.utexas.edu, enter inurl:www.utexas.edu/student/ scholarships.
