Search Tips

Google CSE crawls public content, indexing keywords and phrases. Only Northwestern subdomains are included (with a few exceptions). For best results, enter a query that is specific. For example, instead of a general term such as "annual report," narrow your search by including the name of the department that generated the report. You can wrap a phrase in quotation marks to find an exact match.
