Apply Limiters to your Search Results

Limiters are tools that can be used to refine and narrow search results.  Limiters are particularly helpful when you have received a large number of search results and want to narrow the search to articles that are most relevant to you. 

To refine a search using Limiters:

1.  Conduct a search.

  • Example: A search on the word landslides yields too many results.

2. Click a limiter in the list on the left to narrow your search results.

  • Example: State and Territory can be used to limit the results to a geographic location.

3.  Click on a value in the list that appears.

4.  Your search results will be limited to this value.

  • Example: A search on the word landslides limited to Australia - Queensland now yields fewer, more targeted results. 

5. Continue to use available limiters to refine your search results, as desired.
