ORBITS for Departments?
ITS has created a search engine specialized to search your department's
web site. If you are an A&S department, center, institute or student
organization and host your web site with ITS on our ASE server, you
can request to have this feature inserted on the homepage of your site.
This feature will allow visitors to search for specific content that
exists only in your department's site. ORBITS will also give your visitors
the option to venture outside your site and search all of Tufts' web

feature. Please send an email to email@example.com
