Three Search Options
General searches conducted using the Web Information Service search box (on the Web Information Service home page) search across all the databases in
the service. This method provides the most comprehensive results and is the recommended approach to searching
the Service. Results are presented on a Summary Page where users can follow links or select tabs to easily
navigate through all the search results to find the information they are looking for.
Collection-specific searches can be narrowed and conducted across a single web collection
or a specific database within a collection. By linking to MSDS
plus CHEMINFO, CHEMpendium™, RTECS®, OSH References, and Canadian enviroOSH Legislation search pages from the Web Information Service home page, users can conduct a search that will
produce search results for that collection only. Searches can then be modified directly from the Search
Advanced searches, allowing "field-specific" searching, are available for a number of
databases by following links on the collection-specific search page. [More about...]
