Summary

The aim of the project is to create a user-friendly, extensible, and scalable search package. The project team consists of Dirk Gomez (co-lead), Deirdre Kane (co-lead), and Dave Bauer. MIT Sloan is the lead .LRN institution for this project.

There currently is no working search solution for .LRN. The document below describes how to implement a search package for .LRN for Oracle 8i, which is the database system in use in MIT Sloan School. The described approach should be portable to PostgreSQL.
