Search for a person

Warwick Search indexes information about people at Warwick – including their email address and phone details, home page or e-portfolio (if they have one) – and is searchable by Warwick staff and students.

Add your own ‘live search’ to your web pages

The indexer includes keywords in SiteBuilder pages. If you search for that keyword the results appear, even if the term is not included in the page content itself.

You can also restrict search results by matches against the keywords property – for example:


RSS and JSON feeds of search results

Search results are available as RSS and JSON feeds. These enable you to crawl results and include them in web services. For example, you can create a SiteBuilder page that shows the latest search results for a particular term, personalised to each signed-in person.
