The search box is a very powerful tool, but needs to be understood and used correctly to get good results. The search box uses a catalog of all the pages in the DCCA web site. This catalog is updated nightly with all the web pages and the documents in the web pages. The search box will read this catalog and return a list of links for all pages and documents that match your search criteria. The software used to create the list and perform the search is from Google and behaves the same as the Google search engine except that it is limited to the DCCA web pages. The web page returned with the search results contains a "Search tips" and "Advanced search" that can be used to better understand and use the search box.
