The University of Maryland Baltimore has a Google Search Appliance and we’d like to improve search results by adding more detailed metadata and developing a standard campus-wide naming taxonomy. 

 

Our campus is looking for ways to improve and refine search results based on keywords and metadata attributes such as File Type, Site, Author, and Modified Date along with managed metadata that has been tagged to content returned in results. 

 

We were wondering if anyone else has established naming standards or taxonomy for their campus to use for searching web pages that they’d be willing to share, or any suggestions on how we could develop one for our campus to use.

 

Thanks in advance,

Trisha Kaufman

Hi Trisha, I wish I could help on this, but I can't. I am, though very much interested in what you learn if you're comfortable sharing since we're about to embark on something similar! regards, -Sharon Sharon Roy | Director, Content and Collaboration Solutions | McGill University | Montréal, Québec | http://www.mcgill.ca On 2012-10-16, at 12:00 PM, "Kaufman, Trisha" > wrote: The University of Maryland Baltimore has a Google Search Appliance and we’d like to improve search results by adding more detailed metadata and developing a standard campus-wide naming taxonomy.

Sure - I haven't got any feedback yet but will share when I do.

Trisha,

 

NJIT has a GSA as well, drop me a line if you’d like to discuss better ways to leverage it.
