Help With Search

Our search tool is a powerful way for you to find information anywhere on our site. In addition to supporting advanced search techniques such as searching for phrases and using Boolean operators, our two advanced search pages — one for general searches and one for publications — provide multiple options for focusing a search on a particular information type, topic, or learner.

  • Searching IRA journals

  • Do I have to use the “publications only” search form to find journal articles or book chapters?

  • Why do the “topics” have “subtopics” and when should I use them?

  • How do I use the checkboxes on the advanced search pages?

  • Why does my search always return zero (0) hits?

  • How do I search for a specific phrase?

  • What are Boolean operators and how do I use them?
