To refine your search results

Once your keyword search results display, in the Refine By section of the Search Results page, you can do any of the following:

  • Search for specific terms within your category.
  • Select a subcategory for a more content-targeted search (such as a specific area within a subject).
  • Select one or more filters for a more personalized search (such as content within your learning plan, or content recommended by your colleagues).

Note: To view the results of a single content type (for example, Books or Courses) click View All next to the appropriate heading.
