You can search from the search box on the homepage or the search page, which offers advanced search options.
Using the Search box
Enter your search term/s in the search box and click on the Search button.
If you enter more than one search term, the search engine will retrieve reports containing all of your search terms. For example, new and plymouth.
If you would like to increase the number of search results, select "Any of your words", which will retrieve reports containing either new or plymouth.
If you would like to reduce the number of search results, select "Exact phrase" which will only retrieve reports containing "new plymouth".
You can also use the Boolean operator NOT ("without the words") to narrow your search results. For example, plymouth NOT new will retrieve reports about Plymouth but not New Plymouth.
Using the Search page
The search page contains more search options
Restrict your search to particular sections using the Section Name drop-down box. Hold down the Ctrl key to select more than one section at once.
Restrict your search to a date range by selecting the desired year in the "From" and "To" drop-down boxes.
Once you have carried out a search, you can narrow your search results by clicking on the filter links in the "Narrow your search" box on the right of the screen. To remove these filters, click on the "x" in the "Search filters" box.
Show preview images
You can choose to display search results with preview images, which highlight the portion of the reports which contains your search term/s. This is very useful way of quickly identifying items in which you are interested.
Because showing preview images can slow the loading of the search results, the default setting does not show preview images. You can enable this by turning on "Show preview images".
This lists your previous searches on AtoJs Online; if you click on the result link it will run the search again.
You can access your search history either by clicking on the "View your search history" link on the Search page or by selecting "Search history" on the Search drop-down list on the navigation bar.
