Google Search Engine

TOSM maintains a TTU system-wide Google Search Appliance (GSA) that allows us to 'crawl' and index all web content with a ttu.edu, texastech.edu or ttuhsc.edu domain name. This service is offered to all TTU, TTUS and TTUHSC departments. For more information regarding the GSA, please contact us at serversupport.tosm@ttu.edu.

Texas Tech Google Appliance

Any TTU, TTUS, TTUHSC Department can request a Site Specific Search be setup on the appliance. A site specific search is used by visitors to your web site to only request search results related to your specific URL. To request a site specific search collection, please send your request with the URL you wish to be indexed to the TOSM Server Support Group.

Example: (Notice Only Results from the Senate Archives Site are returned)

Once TOSM has setup your Site Specific Search, you will receive an email with the SUBCOLLECTION NAME.

Enter the sub-collection name into the code below, then paste the code in your web site template where you would like the search box to show on the page.

Code to add to your website:

<td style="text-align: center; width: 400px">
        <form method="get" action="http://google.ttu.edu/search">
            <p>
            <input type="text" name="q" size="25" maxlength="255" value="" />
            <input type="hidden" name="site" value="SUBCOLLECTION NAME" />
