LON-CAPA has a built-in search of LON-CAPA resources. Metadata exists for each resource published in the LON-CAPA repository. Much of the metadata which exists is reported by the author upon resource publication. Some dynamic metadata is tracked by the system as well.
To access the search functionality, select Search the database of published resources and accessible protfolio files on the Main Menu. If you wish to search for resources related to a certain word or phrase, the Basic Search provides the capabitility to search a number of metadata fields at once.
If you have more specific needs, such as a desire to search on metadata not included in the basic search, the Advanced Search will allow you to specify values for as many metadata fields you are interested in.
