A personalised discovery service using Google custom search engine

Dhara, Arup


This paper provides an overview of Google custom search engine (CSE) and discusses some of the possibilities and methodologies regarding how these technologies and products might be helpful in developing college library discovery systems without deploying costly commercial tools or without venturing into the technicalities of open source tools. It is based on the experiences of designing a small-scale personalised discovery service for the Ramsaday College Library in Howrah, West Bengal and its integration with the library OPAC as one stop access to an array of library resources.
