The search functionality on McGill websites has been improved. Previously, you would have to first choose whether you wanted to search the local site or expand your search to include all McGill sites. Now you can enter your search term once at the top of the web page, and you will be presented with a single page with two tabs : one containing matches within the local site and a “McGill” tab containing matches found within all McGill sites.
