Restrict Search Using Pre-Search Filters

You can restrict your search to a specific source or topic so you have fewer results. When you get your results, you can narrow them further using the filters on your results page. Use one of these methods to restrict your search.

To do this:

  1. At the Search > Home page, enter your search terms in the search box.
  2. To filter your search to a specific timeframe, choose from the Date drop-down list. (By default, this option is set to Previous 2 Years.)
  3. To focus your search on a specific type of content, click the All Content Types drop-down list and choose your options. Which content type you choose changes which options are available to you.
  4. To choose from a recent search or list of favorite sources, click the Recents & Favorites link.
  5. Complete your search by clicking the Search button.
