1. How do I use your search feature?
You can always start your search with a single word. Example: education will find all articles containing the word "education." You may want to narrow your search by using a series of words. The search will look for documents containing all of the terms you've specified, just as if you included the word "or" between each of your keywords. Example: food safety will find all articles containing the words "food" or "safety."


If you want to search for a series of words where all words need to be included, use "and" between your words. Example: "food" AND "safety" will find all articles where the word "food" and "safety" are used in the article. If you want to search for a specific phrase, use quotes. Example: "food safety" will find all articles where the word "food" is followed directly by "safety." To exclude a keyword from a document you are searching for, include the "-" (minus) before the keyword. Example: "food" AND "safety" - "dairy" will find all articles containing the word "food" AND "safety" but only if they don't also contain the word "dairy."

2. How do I get better search results?
Too many results: Be specific with your search terms. If your search returns too many articles, refine your search by adding additional keywords or by choosing less common keywords. You can also search within a variety of date ranges using the Advanced Search. If you are searching for a recent document, you can try selecting a date range within 30 days as your range. Click Advanced Search to expand your options. From here, you can specify a Custom Date Range. Click Advanced to bring up even more options. Now you can narrow your search with the Category and Author fields. The more selections you make, the more precise your search results will be. Once you've performed an advanced search, you can then also refine your search by updating your keyword(s). Not enough results: To get more results, select different or more common search words or a broader date range.

3. How do I search for a specific date?
Enter dates in the format: "MM/DD/YYYY" for both the Start and End Dates. This will return all articles published within that date range.
