Searching Tips

Execute searches by entering one or more pieces of information about a document. For example, if you know the date of the document, you can simply enter it into the Date Range field. If you know the Department or Commission that generated the document, you may also enter it. The more information you enter, the more focused the search results will be.

Document Type

To restrict the search to see only certain types of documents, uncheck the 'Search All Types' box and then select the desired document type from the list. You can select multiple types by holding the ctrl or shift key down while clicking.

Ordinance or Resolution Number

To search for documents related to a specific Ordinance or Resolution Number, enter the number in the approprate field.

Date Range

Enter a date range to help focus your search results. If you know the exact date of a document, enter the same date in the Beginning and End date.

Dept / Commission

Limit your search to only look for public documents from a specific Department or Commission by selecting the desired Department or Commision from the list.

Text Searches

Text searches work similar to an Internet search engine. The order of the words doesn't matter. For example, if you enter:

Franklin Benjamin

The system will return document belonging to Benjamin Franklin and Franklin Roosevelt and Benjamin Moore.

Wild Cards

The * character is a wild card character. It can be substituted for any other character or characters. For example, if you enter:

Frank* Ben*

The system will return documents belonging to Benjamin Franklin, Ben Frank, and Bennie Frankenstein. This can be useful if you are unsure about spelling.

Search Operators

By using certain modifiers, or operators, you can focus your search.

+

The + operator tells the system that this word must appear in the document. For example, if you enter:

Franklin +BenjaminAdvanced

The system will documents belonging to Benjamin Franklin, but not Franklin Roosevelt, because Benjamin must appear in the document.

-

The - operator tells the system that this word must NOT appear in the document. For example, if you enter:

Franklin -BenjaminAdvanced

The system will return documents belonging to Franklin Roosevelt, but not Benjamin Franklin.
