After reviewing the autocomplete search module component in the OPAC for performance and accessibility, we will be deactivating it beginning today. At this time the module causes errors for users requiring ADA assistance readers and plugins and greatly reduces the return speed of some searches. If you receive feedback from your users or staff regarding this change that you feel should be taken into consideration as we move forward, please do share it with us!
