Lafayette’s search engine is powered by a focused version of Bing. The search engine allows you to perform focused searches of individual sites at Lafayette or search the college’s entire Web presence.
The search engine for the college’s Web presence is powered by the Bing Search API, which delivers Google’s search functionality restricted to the Lafayette web presence.
The search results returned by the Site Search API are based in part on how many links there are to a page. There is also a “KeyMatches” feature that allows the College to match specific Web pages to terms searchers are likely to use. Suggestions for new KeyMatches can be submitted to the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 330-5501.
The website is available at search.lafayette.edu.
