All users see the latest current results for each Database Search!
- Search Real Fast builds and maintains ALL custom Search Site Database connector URLs for hundreds of public as well as each of your Libraries’ specific subscription and catalog search sites – Neither you nor your customers have to deal with creation or maintenance of these URL connectors.
- Search Real Fast creates and maintains a separate subscription record for each of your library customers under your Group subscription.
- Each subscription record holds the list of Search Site Databases we maintain and your user sees in their SRF Express application screen.
- Each database search URL is constructed and sent from each user’s browser directly to that particular database.
- The search results from each database are returned directly to that user’s browser, speeding delivery while eliminating discovery web server setup and indexing!
- Each Library’s SRF Express application screen lists five to 10 Search Site Databases they choose and their users may query in parallel or individually.
- The top five to ten keywords may be used to automatically display results for that Library’s Catalog search and additional search sites in separate browser tabs.
- After you paste or type in text into a search box, the same text appears in the entry field when you change database buttons.
- Even after a database button is used for a search, when the user returns to their SRF Express search box using their browser Back-Arrow, the same text remains for another database button selection and search.
