Several places refer to the phrase "Indexed search" for example on p. 1 "This investment by libraries in indexed search." and then again in 1.2 in the definition for central index it says "also known as indexed search." I find this confusing. If I was using federated search wouldn't I still be doing indexed search? just on multiple indexes instead of a central index?

Submitter Proposed Solution

Changed indexed search to centrally indexed search. Adjust the definition list accordingly.
