Basic Search

Search the Library

The basic search accesses the title, description, filename, and keywords for the search term(s) you enter. Enter your search term or phrase in the "Search the Library" box and then click the Search button. Search results will be displayed on the search results page.

Advanced Search

The advanced search accesses the title, description, filename, and keywords of the library for the search terms you entered. You can also use the advanced search criteria fields to enhance your results. Each additional search criterion you use will aid in narrowing your search results.

For example:

  • Typing in "energy efficiency program" and clicking on the Search button may retrieve many search results.
  • If you make one or more selections from the "Information For" listing and click Search, your search results may be reduced to a smaller set.
  • To further narrow your results, try making a selection from the "Policy/Program" or "Author" listing and retry your search by clicking the Search button.

Browse by Topic

Use the "Browse by Topic" screen to select from a list of terms that describe SEE Action publications. When you click on a term, a search is initiated to look for publications related to that term. Make a selection from the "Information For" list to filter your results.

For example:

  • Selecting "Industrial Energy Efficiency" may retrieve many results.
  • Selecting "Local Policymakers" from the "Information For" list will limit your results to publications that may interest local policymakers and are related to industrial energy efficiency.
