On July 1, 2014, ITS will be transitioning the backend service for search.uiowa.edu from the locally hosted Google Search Appliances to the Google Custom Search Engine service.

This change will affect sites currently implementing a search form pointing to search.uiowa.edu. On July 1st, any searches going to search.uiowa.edu will instead be routed to a Google Custom Search Engine site. This new site has improved search results and increased ability to customize features included on search.uiowa.edu.

Additional information about this service change can be found at http://its.uiowa.edu/support/article/102629.
