Handling report searches in Dspace

Our project repository is now completely accessible via our Web portal.  All you need to do is type a search string (like the word "art") into the search box (top right) and voilà!  The results are displayed and you can return to the web portal by clicking the title bar.  All of our 20 years of projects are catalogued in  Dspace, an online repository system developed by MIT and HP.  Each entry is handled through a unique URI (Universal Resource Identifier) which is a permalink that uniquely points to the report's bibliographical records.  Every word in the bibliographical record is fully indexed and the search is very fast.  
We're working on including pointers to the report's PDF and on a process to export the report archive to knowledge reef here in Santa Fe.
