     Searches Using Explorit

From within any document under Explorit the search screen may be accessed by clicking on the Search button on the Explorit Tool Bar. On the search screen click once in the search criteria field, type the words or phrases for your query, and click on the Submit button to launch the search.

Explorit returns a list of documents from each site selected. From this results list, click on the highlighted ID for the document you wish to view.

Most documents under Explorit are in ASCII or PDF format. To return to the results list from within a document, close the Acrobat Reader (in the case of a PDF document) or use the Up button on the Explorit Tool Bar.

Focus and refine your searches by becoming familiar with the examples hyperlink found on all Explorit search form screens and by reading the following tips. The more you fine tune your queries, the greater your success will be in finding the exact information you need.

To avoid long irrelevant results lists focus your query by using more specific terms and various operators. If you are getting little or no results from a search query, try broadening your search using stemming and wild cards, or by simply broadening your terms.

Searches under Explorit are not case sensative. The search results list will be the same regardless of whether you use upper-case or lower-case letters in your query.

The search engine that underlies Explorit uses stemming. The search engine will automatically search for multiple stems of words in any query submitted. To avoid stemming and search for an exact phrase only, enclose your query entry in double quotes.

The default connector for words in a phrase is <or>. To override this default and search for an exact word or phrase enclose your query in double quotes.


The Alerts feature is a service that will automatically notify you when new documents are available in your specific areas of interest.
