Conference Board of Canada e-Library (database instruction)

The Conference Board of Canada e-Library is an authoritative source of research on the Canadian economy and business-related topics. The following pages provide a step-by-step introduction to the e-Library for Red River College students and staff.

Advanced Search

The e-Library's Advanced Search uses a Google custom search engine, so the search options are somewhat limited.

We can use the "File Format" option to limit search results to (for example) PDF documents or PowerPoint presentations.

The search engine will NOT search within PDF documents. We have to Adobe Acrobat to search within each separate PDF document.
