Thanks to David Sharp for sharing this with us!
A few weeks back, David Oldenkamp from Indiana University kindly shared information on his international documents web search engine with us. His work inspired me to try and make a similar one for Canadian documents. If you would like to take a look at what I came up with, you can find it at: http://www.library.carleton.ca/madgic/
For now, it searches on the federal level, including select crown corporations, the provincial and territorial level; as well, it searches 80 municipal sites from across Canada. (The 80 municipalities were chosen from a list of Statistic Canada’s Census Metropolitan Areas, Census Agglomerations, and Census Subdivisions for Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Apologies if I overlooked anyone.)
I would be happy to receive any feedback or suggestions for improvement, especially if you know of sites that I might have overlooked. I will also be happy to supply the code if you are interested in putting the search box on one of your pages.
