A simple search will look for any of the search terms in the program record. All fields are searched, including captions. By default, the results will be sorted by relevance.

An advanced search provides additional options to focus your search. Here you may search for exact phrases. You may limit your search to a specific subject area and broadcast date, and you can specify what metadata fields are searched, i.e. title, description, captions.

Pre-formatted searches allow you to log in to Informit and jumpstart to a particular database and retrieve results automatically.

The syntax is search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX;search=YYYYY where XXXXX is the database you wish to search and YYYYY is the search term, e.g. to find all articles in a database where a Plus Text PDF is available, this is the syntax required:

search.informit.org/search;res=APAFT;search=FTI=Yes

When you are viewing the search screen, the black Informit toolbar shows a link on the left-hand side indicating the number of databases you are searching.

For more information about the databases you are searching, click on the link. This opens a window with information. When more than one database is in use, a dropdown menu lists all available databases. Click on any of these databases to view further information, including lists of journals covered.

When you view the results of searches, they can be sorted by the options displayed in a dropdown menu at the top right of your result set. By default the records are sorted by relevance. Changes made in this area apply only to your current session.

Click the Advanced Search tab. Use the Limit Search option to select your preferred publication years. Enter a date range and perform your search.

The number of records that can fit on one screen depends on:

  1. Your screen resolution—if you are running a smaller resolution than 1024x768, you will only see a few results at any given time.
  2. How many fields are in the citation for the database you are using—each database has different fields that make up the citation (or summary) record. In some cases this may be 10 fields; therefore you will see fewer records per page than, for example, a database that has five citation fields.
