Family Support On-Line Manuals Search Instructions

Developed by the DCBS Training Branch in conjunction with the Division for Family Support

August, 2004

To proceed, please press Enter

slide2

The search engine for the online manuals is now operational. This tutorial will show you how to do the following:

  • Conduct a simple search
  • Conduct an advanced search
  • Search a specific volume
  • Disregard certain volumes
  • Create a shortcut on your desktop
slide3

Part I

The Simple Search

slide4

This should look familiar to all users as it is the opening page of the Family Support on-line policy manuals.

To search, you can click the appropriate volume from this page OR you can enter a word, words, or phrase into the search field.

slide5

We conduct a simple search by entering search words such as self employment in the search field, then clicking the “GO” button. The search engine will search every volume for the words “self employment”.

slide6

75 links from different volumes have been returned.

Users may scroll down to the bottom of the page to see additional pages of returned links

slide7

One problem with simple searches is that they will return all instances of the term entered. In this case, 8 pages of links were returned.

slide10

To return to the search function click the BACK button rather than closing the window. Closing the window will log you out of the policy manuals altogether.

slide11

Part 2

The Advanced Search

slide12

The Advanced Search Link is located at the top of each page that shows returned links from your simple search

slide13

Clicking the advanced search button brings up this screen. Whatever word, words, or phrase you were using while conducting the simple search will be carried over to the top box.

Box 1 will search all volumes for the word self and the word employment.

Box 1

slide14

Using this box alone is very much like running the simple search. The results should be the same.

slide15

Part 3

Search a specific volume

slide16

In the second box the user can specify which manual to search.

In this example the parameters are set to search for self-employment in Volume II, Food Stamp Program

Box 2

slide17

All returned links are from Volume II.

We chose MS 5320 as an example.

slide19

In this example the search engine will search through every manual for the words paternity or established.

Box 3

slide20

By using box 3, we have 206 results from assorted manuals.

The search engine hit on paternity and it also hit on established.

slide21

Part 4

Disregard Certain Volumes

slide22

The search engine can be instructed to skip searching in certain volumes.

In this example we are telling the search engine to find the words verifytimely and specifically not to look in Volume IVA Medicaid and State Supplementation.

Box 4

slide23

Users can always double check the parameters by looking at this line.

It searched for verify OR timely and excluded Volume IVA.

slide25

You can also exclude multiple volumes. In this example Volume III and Volume IIIA will be skipped during the search for paternity or established.

slide26

We have 140 hits returned.

However you will notice that Volume III and Volume IIIA have been excluded.

slide27

Common Search Tips:

  • The on-line search function is powered by
  • Do not leave a space between the volume and its number. Enter voli not vol i.
  • The Google search engine is not case sensitive, you may enter cHilD sUppOrt in the search field
  • If you are searching for an exact term, enter quotation marks around the word. For example “Food Stamp IPV”
slide28

Google will compress multiple pages that contain the same phrase.

To display all of the results click on the underscored part of the message.

slide29

Part 5
