You can add a Minerva search box to your webpages. Just copy the code below  and paste it into your webpage where you want the search to appear.

Minerva Search Widget Code:

<form name="searchwidget" style="display:inline" target="_blank" action="http://minerva.maine.edu/search/" method="get">
Search the Catalog by:
      <select name="searchtype">
        <option value="t" selected="selected">Title</option>
        <option value="X">Keyword</option>      
        <option value="a">Author</option>        
        <option value="d">Subject</option> 
      <input type="text" name="searcharg" size="30" maxlength="75" value="" alt="Search Minerva" />
      <input type="hidden" name="searchscope" value="71" />
      <input type="hidden" name="SORT" value="D" />
      <input type="hidden" name="extended" value="0" />
      <input type="submit" name="SUBMIT" value="Search Minerva" />

Common Adjustments

Change the Scope by changing the value from “71” to your scope in this line:

        <input type="hidden" name="searchscope" value="71" />
