Last thing I was working on before Christmas was adding searching into CLUMP. CLUMP’s search function uses LUMP’s FindSuid API to find a list of Module structural units which contain the search term in the selected data element (at the minute the data elements supported are Module Title, Module Code and Academic’s name).
There are two reasons that CLUMP searches for Modules rather than reading lists. The main reason being, if a module has multiple reading lists it is better to take the user to the module to see all the related reading lists.
The second reason is that all the current data elements that can be searched are related to the module structural units and not the reading list structural units, and it would be a bit convoluted to get a list module structural units and then look up the reading lists for each one.
