This is a first attempt at indexing parts of StatLib. The
database just contains all index files for each of the StatLib
collections. To search for, say, integration, just enter the
word into the search box and press Submit Query. In return you will
be presented with the list of index files that contain that string.
To actually find the string within the index file you will need to
click on the name of the index file and then use your browsers local
search function (Find in Netscape) to find occurances of the string on
the displayed page. This is not perfect, but I do not know how to do
I have NOT indexed all the the material in StatLib, only the
index files. Indexing everything would probably not be very useful as
it would result in lots of spurious hits.
Some of the individual StatLib collections might also contain their
own search functions. At the moment, the archive of the annual joint
statistical meetings (joint94,
joint95) can be searched using a
different search engine, and the archives of the
mailing list can be searched using the new method.
This is still an experiment. In the future I might need to modify the
details, or completely turn off the service.
Here are pointers to the two new databases.
- StatLib Index
- S-news Database
