Search Help


Users may perform their search in either a basic or advanced method.

Basic Search Basic Search


To perform a basic search, users simply add a keyword into the search box at the upper right corner of the website and select the magnifying glass. If you want to search for keywords that are not necessarily in a phrase together, you have to separate them by a comma (,) or search for one and then search within the results for the other. Special characters within a search such as quotation marks (") are not allowed.

Provided results are sorted by relevance as the default or Display by Relevance. Users may also select the Display by Date to see the results in reverse chronological order. The Advanced Search, All Content filter is applied by default.
