Theme and function updates at search.nd.edu

Author: Erik Runyon

search.nd.edu homepageThe updated search.nd.edu.

The Notre Dame homepage was updated in October 2018 with a new design. To reflect this change, search.nd.edu has been updated to match that new University theme. In addition to an updated theme, there are changes to the search features as well.

When you perform a search, you will see the "Web" results by default.

There are also tabs for other types of search results:

  • People
  • News
  • Events
  • Office/Department
  • Images

People

These results have been available in the sidebar for some time, but have been moved to the primary search area. You can search by name or NetID.

News, Events

The News and Events tabs display results from all Conductor websites.

If you're a Conductor admin in charge of News or Events for your site, make use of the Excerpt and Featured Image features so your search results look as good as possible.

Office/Department

This search uses the same data source (currently LDAP) as the people search, but will only return results for Offices and Departments.

Images

The Images tab returns results from photos.nd.edu.

If you don't see the image you're looking for in the initial results, use the "View more on photos.nd.edu" button to see additional relevant search results on photos.nd.edu.
