UCCS Search Tool

September 25, 2013
Web Services was tasked with updating the main campus search page. Additionally Web Services decided to make this the first mobile-friendly site on campus.

Site: http://search.uccs.edu 

Launched: September 2013

Goals and Requirements: The UCCS search page was using a older version of the Google Custom Search engine.  Additionally the site functionality was broken up over several tabs.  The goal was to unify the interface, searching multiple directories in parallel and utilize the updated Google search tools.  Additional this application was designated as important to make as mobile-friendly. 

Outcomes: This was the first site on the UCCS domain that was created with a responsive mobile-first methodology.  The tabbed interface was removed and all of the search results were presented on the same interface.
