    360 Search: Google Connections Not Available

    • Product: 360 Search

    Why are there no connections to Google in 360 Search?

    Google's Terms of Use state that any federated search engine, such as 360 Search, is not allowed to display results from Google properties. In order to satisfy Google's terms, Serials Solutions terminated connections to Google content in both 360 Search in mid-2008.
    If you would still like to include Google in your federated search interface, please use the Support Portal option near the top of this page to have it added as a "link-only resource" -- meaning that there will be a link to the Google native search in your interface, but Google results will not be included in the federated search results.
    For more information about Google's Terms of Use please visit: http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS. The specifics can be found in section 5.3.
