The University of Florida and the Google Search Appliance
The University of Florida (UF) is a public research university in Gainesville, Florida. Founded in 1853, UF is Florida's largest and oldest educational institution and is among the nation's most academically comprehensive public universities, with programs in fields ranging from agriculture to law. Providing fast and accurate access to relevant information is a key part of the university's mission. UF's first requirement was to make research materials available quickly and easily to students in diverse fields without making they navigate the university's vast and complex network. UF deployed Google's GB-1001 to simplify search for students, faculty, and staff. The Google Search Appliance crawls the entire UF network seamlessly, no matter what platform a particular server is running.
