About the CLU-IN Search Engine
The CLU-IN Search Engine was upgraded in July 2004. Significant improvements introduced with this revision include:
- Simultaneous searches of the entire CLU-IN web site while transparently performing more detailed searches within our publications, the CLU-IN Studio, and Upcoming Courses and Conferences.
- Display of a unified result set for these multiple searches, with results ranked by relevancy in descending order (as opposed to the four separate result sets previously provided).
- Improved relevancy weighting controls for items that frequently occur within search results, such as archived TechDirect messages.
- Functions as both a tool to locate specific items and an alternate navigational tool to broad CLU-IN areas (such as Contaminant Focus) based on use of the previous search engine.
- Offers users the option to perform full-text searches of Adobe Acrobat publication files.
- Offers an integrated spell checker for search terms.
Categorizing Search Results
The CLU-IN Search Engine displays results within four distinct categories, displayed as navigational tabs on the search results page. Search results are placed into these four categories as follows:
- CLU-IN Web Site Pages
- Individual CLU-IN Resources (example)
- Individual entries from the CLU-IN Site Map
- Individual CLU-IN Publications (with searches based on title, abstract, and EPA publication number if applicable)
- Full Text of Individual CLU-IN Publications in Adobe Acrobat format (optional; included by default)
We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.
