    Add keyword search index to the Voyager WebVoyage Advanced Search

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    How do I add a search index to the Advanced Search page?


    Since the Advanced Search (sometimes referred to as the Builder Search) page only uses keyword searches, it pulls the necessary search code information from the 1) Indexes - Keyword Definitions and 2) Indexes - Holdings Keyword Definitions configured in the Voyager System Administration module.

    The Advanced Search page thus uses keyword definitions, and any keyword index that is not suppressed from OPAC in SysAdmin (the "OPAC Suppress checkbox is not checked) will appear as an option to search within on the Advanced Search page.

    Keep in mind that the order of the searches in the search within drop-down is dependent upon usage, so when you uncheck the "OPAC Suppress" box, the index will appear at the bottom of the list of searches.

    You can also create your own keyword search index.
