ACNM Library Search

The ACNM Library Search provides the ability to drop a search on a webpage for specific files for a specified combination of keyword, topic and/or category. To show up in the search, there must be a record saved in the ACNM Library2 Files. The files that will appear first in search results are those with keywords specified within the birth tool files and with the keyword in the title of the document. After those documents, any other documents with the search word in the content of the document will be displayed.

To place the Library Search on a web page, go to the page, login and click edit. While editing the page, put your cursor in the copy box and select ACNM LIBRARY2 FILE SEARCH from the Add-On drop down menu. Click OK to save changes.

When you first place this add-on on a webpage, you will see the following screen:

Here the user can type in a keyword and if they want they can choose a specific Category or Topic to narrow results.

Adding Files to the Library Search Results

Next enter a description for the file, which will show up in the search results screen.

Click on the META tab to select the Category, File Type and Topic for the document. Also, enter the keywords relevant to this document on this screen.

Click OK when you are done to save changes.
