Engineering Village encapsulates a search request method that enables a RESTful API client to perform an expert search across all or any combination of Engineering Village databases. It also provides the ability to retrieve one or more records by unique document identifiers from these same databases.Detailed policy:
Definition: incorporates within the client application a search tool that takes the user's query, passes it on to different search indexes through APIs, gets the results from those APIs and combines them into a single result list for the user to see. This practice is common in digital library portals at universities, and Engineering Village's indexes are common targets for this. It also provides the ability to retrieve those results based on unique, individual document identifiers.
We allow this use case under the following conditions:
