Search Tips

ProSeek searches documents for words or phrases by page. In general, the best search results are generated by entering a specific search term, but you can enter as many words as you like. Visit the Search Tips section of this Help file for additional information.


Filtering (return to top)


Filtering allows you to narrow the browse and search results by utilizing the object's metadata. Let's say you were looking for all the newspaper issues from a specific month. You can use filter categories to limit your results to just the issues published in the month of May (05).
