Workload Compendium - About Keywords
|Back to Search|
A keyword is a specific word or phrase found in the summary of a document within the database. Keywords can help you focus your search. If you choose to enter one or more keywords, the search engine will limit your results to document summaries that contain the exact word(s) or phrase(s) you typed into the keyword field. To enter an exact phrase, use quotation marks.
For example, if you know you are looking specifically for documents that address the workload of adoption workers, enter the term adoption as a keyword. The results will only present documents that have the word adoption in their summary. Or, if you are looking for information on family preservation workers, enter the phrase "family preservation" as a keyword (using quotes) to find documents that address this topic.
The keyword(s) field can also help you locate documents specific to a county or jurisdiction, if they are available. For example, if you are looking for workload information in New York City, select New York in the State field, then enter the phrase "New York City" as a keyword. The results will only present documents from the State of New York that address workload in New York City.
