A brief overview of the Scholar's Portal Project is provided, and the approach used at the UA Libraries to implement the federated search engine is detailed. This article also reports on the results of usability testing, interviews, and a user satisfaction survey used to determine the functionality of Scholar's Portal and the search results.
