You may search by category, title, abstract, keyword, author, document number, or any combination of these. For instance, you can select a category and also enter an author name.
Search by Category
To select more than one category, hold down your control (Ctrl) key while clicking on category names with your mouse.
Search by Title, Keyword, Abstract
Searches the title, abstract, and keywords to find documents with the words you typed. When you click the "search" button, three sets of results are returned: 1) documents with the exact phrase; 2) documents with all the words you typed, but not necessarily in the order you typed; 3) documents with any one of the words you typed.
Search by Author
To search for documents by a particular author (includes authors and contributing authors), type in the name of the author. You are more likely to get the results you want by typing in the last name only. If you type in two last names, separated by a space, all documents with either name listed as the author will be returned in the search results.
Search by Title Only
Searches the title for the word(s) you typed. If you typed in more than one word, the search retrieves documents with all of the words in the title, but not necessarily in the order typed.
Search by Document Number
If you know the document number, you may enter it here. You may enter multiple document numbers separated by a space.
