Google chrome custom search query presentation

  1. 1. Google Chrome Custom Search Query Bryan Nguyen, PharmD Candidate 2015 & Timothy Aungst, PharmD
  2. 2. Open Google Chrome
  3. 3. Open Settings
  4. 4. Click [Manage search engines…]
  5. 5. In another tab, run generic search in actual desired search engine; e.g., Lexicomp Two things: First make sure you are searching via the schools resource. Second, It doesn’t matter what you search, you just need to generate a search URL for the next step.
  6. 6. Following search, copy the URL from the generic search
  7. 7. Under [Manage search engines…], input the search engine information
  8. 8. Under “URL with %s in place of query”, paste URL from search engine and replace generic search term with “%s” – then click [Done] All that we are doing here is replacing the search item with “&s” to create the shortcut for future search terms. That’s why we are removing whatever you searched for before (in this example “generic”) and replacing it only. I would recommend putting an easy shorcut for searches, such as “Lexicomp” = Lexi, or “Micromedex” = Micro, “Dynamed” = Dyna, etc.
  9. 9. In a new tab, type in ‘keyword’ used, spacebar, then search query desired In this example, I typed in “Lexi” followed by “Space [Hitting the space bar once]” to open up the quick search – You may need to login via the libraries proxy server the first time using this method – Now you can run your drug search (Ex. Furosemide)
  10. 10. And there you have it! A quick way to ‘hack’ your browser to look up medical information instead of logging in directly to the proxy page and going through your library index all the time.
  11. 11. Similarly, in Firefox, open search engine, right click in search box, click “Add a keyword for this search…”
  12. 12. Enter desired keyword, then save
