We’ve completed the first 3 phases of the launch of our new search engine and we now have a total of 33 databases available online. Work is now underway on the fourth and final phase of this launch and it consists of migrating the databases located within the Locations/Maps/Towns and Book Review categories to the new search engine.
The new search engine uses an all-inclusive search form to search and display user-requested database records. Although the search form “looks” different, it was designed to “function exactly as it did previously” on our old website. To help you get started, we’ve prepared a “How to Use the New Search Engine” document.
We designed the search engine to be intuitive, accurate and efficient, but if you experience any issues please give us your feedback and let us know what we can do to improve the search process. You can send a note to [email protected].
