Search help

General tips

Every page on our website has a search box in the top right hand corner. Type your search term and hit enter or click the 'search' button.

If you are searching for a term with more than one word (e.g. research committee) all results will automatically contain both words - you do not need to type 'research AND committee'.

If you want to search for the entire phrase 'research committee' you will need to add quote marks around the phrase: "research committee".

Wildcards can be used. For example, entering 'eng*' will bring back results containing engineering, engineers, engagement. English etc.

Special features

Our search facility includes filtering features on the right hand side of the search results page.

Simply click on the document "Type" or "Year" to display only those results. For example, clicking on "PDF" will show only PDF documents in the results displayed.

To the right is a "cross" icon, which also allows you to exclude document types, year etc.

Once a  "Type" or "Year" has been chosen they can be removed by clicking the eraser icon which appears above the "cross" icon.

You can also save any search query or filter using the 'Save' option at the end of the right hand column. You can recall any saved query or filter using the drop-down menu at the top of the right hand column.
