I would like to search the ISYS website for:
Into the box, type the text you want to find. You can type a single word, a phrase, or combinations of words and phrases. You do not need quotation marks (") to delineate a phrase. To search for multiple words or phrases, type your first word of phrase, then click on one of the operators listed on the left. These are explained below.

  • AND which ALSO contain…
    Use this operator if you want to find ALL the terms in your query. For example, you may search for "black" and "white" where they BOTH appear anywhere on the same page.

  • OR which contain…
    Use this operator if you want to find at least one of the terms in your query. For example, you may search for "black" OR "white", where EITHER or BOTH of them appear on a page.

  • BUT do NOT contain…
    Use this operator to find one of the terms in your query but NOT the other. For example, you may search for "black" but NOT "white, where "black" appears anywhere on the page, but "white" does not appear on the same page.

  • Within a PARAGRAPH of…
    Use this operator to find BOTH the terms in your query, within a paragraph of each other. For example, you may search for "black" AND "white" where they occur on the same page, no further apart than in adjacent paragraphs.

  • In the same PARAGRAPH as…
    Use this operator to find BOTH the terms in your query, in the SAME paragraph as each other. For example, you may search for "black" AND "white" where they occur in the same paragraph, on the same page.

  • Within 10 words of…
    Use this operator to find BOTH the terms in your query, within 10 words of each other. For example, you may search for "black" AND "white", where they occur on the same page, no further apart than 10 words.

  • Followed anywhere by…
    Use this operator to find BOTH the terms in your query, where the second term appears anywhere after the first. For example, you may search for "white" where it occurs anywhere on a page, as long as it is after "black".

Search scope:
You can choose to search the entire website or one section at a time. Search the entire website if you don't know which section your search terms are likely to occur in. If you know the page you are looking for occurs in a particular section, choose that section before you commence your search. For example, you may be looking for a press release about ISYS:desktop, in which case you may choose to search for "ISYS:desktop" in the "Media" section of the site.

Results per page:
Choose the number of results per page you would like to see from the drop-down menu.

Sort results by:
Choose the order in which you would like your results presented. The default order is by document relevance, or how closely each document matches your query.
