Google Search Boxes: Overview

Throughout LibGuides we use the Google Custom Search Engine to create the search boxes.  This guide details how to create the search boxes, how to implement them in LibGuides, and things to consider when creating a search box.

Components of the search

Within LibGuides, there are two components to the Google custom searches.  First, there is the search box, which is generally found in the guide banner.  The second component is a guide to house the search results.
