Google Custom Search Engine

Google Custom Search lets UMN users include a search engine on their website to help visitors find the information they're looking for.  

In November 2018, UMN's Drupal Support Team migrated new search modules to the non-production Drupal Enterprise environments (including both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8). These modules support the transition from the Google Search Appliance (GSA) to the Google Custom Search Engine (GCSE).  


  • Unified search across all University sites
  • Customization options for searching only specific sites
  • Pre-configured default settings for immediate implementation
