Searching Smarter

Web search engines are important tools for finding Government reports as well as resources from industry and professional organisations.

Advanced Search functionality available in search engines saves time and increases relevancy of results. Try using the Advanced Search options in Google to:

  • Search by file type - i.e. PDF (documents without intro web page content)
  • Search by domain - i.e. (useful for locating government reports)
  • Search by date

To see many other ways of refining your search in Google, view the short video below.
