Let you, or any visitor to your law-related web site, search many law-related websites at the same time, restricting your search to a relevant particular community, e.g. the Washington State legal community.
- Define a set of websites to search, e.g. the websites of all law-related organizations in Washington State.
- Create a search for those sites alone, using Google Custom Search Engine (GCS). No doubt other search engines have or will have similar features.
- Put that search on your website. It looks like any other web search feature, just with a special label. See http://prototypebar.blogspot.com/
WAlaw currently covers:
What sites should be added?
Who volunteers to keep this list updated?
What other GSCs would be helpful, e.g. other jurisdictions?
