Search Tips

Add these limits to your searches to get more targeted and relevant results:

  • " " to search words as a phrase instead of individually - "international development"
  • site: to limit to a particular website or domain - site:gov or
  • filetype: to limit to a filetype - filetype:pdf or filetype:xls
  • - (minus sign) to eliminate websites with that word

Typing "international development" filetype:pdf will limit your results to publications in pdf form (i.e. reports and working papers) hosted on the United Nations website that refer to the phrase international development.
