[Web4lib] Lack of discussion of Google CSE and Libraries

You have the option to put the code for it on your pages.  I did this
with the CSEs I created.  You can also disable any advertising appearing
on it.  The search results page for my library is on our server.  Google
CSE uses a javascript to create an IFRAME to display the search results
where you want them.

I'm with Ross on this.  What you say is true, but only from within  
Google.  Is there a way to take this tool and put it on our library  
website, or do we have to set up our CSE's on Google, and go there  
(or send patrons there) to use the tool?

Cool tool, but better than sliced bread?
